Hello everyone,

I am using an evaluation version of Design builder v6.0.1.019. I am trying to run simulations for a multistoried building that has more than 50 thermal zones. I received a .lic file from the team as there are restrictions to run simulations for models with more than 50 zones. I am still unable to run any simulations even affter adding the .lic file. Have any one of had this problem? Is there a way to resolve it?

Thanks Ranjani

As far as i know the limit for maximum 50 thermal zones applies only to the trial version. Go to "Help / Licence" to see the licence details and activated modules.

Try to simplify the model to use less than 50 thermal zones and see if it works.
