Question was also posted to the helpdesk, ticket 13119, repeating answer here for everyone else.

  1. Delete the first line of the shading csv file "This file contains external shading fractions for all shading surfaces of all zones."
  2. The shading schedule file must contain a full year of data, even if you do not intend to run all months. The schedule file reader does not read the date/time stamps in column 1, it simply assumes that the first row of data is 01/01 hour 1, and so on.

See related open issue #6482.
