Can someone please help a newbie with an error message when simulating a complex fenestration system with a gas fill? Not sure about what info that needs to be provided to help. Below is the error message. The BSDF info was generated by WINDOW7 and exported as a BSDF.IDF. The gap data from the BSDF is also below.

Error:
