ProgramControl was removed starting with EnergyPlus v8.6 (Sep 2016). When exporting an idf file from DesignBuilder (or any other interface), check the Version object to see what version of EnergyPlus the file was written for. Be sure to run the idf with that version of EnergyPlus or use the IDFVersionUpdater to move it forward to a later version.
