Hello guys,

Just trying to make a Radiance measure work, but at simulation run it doesn't process anything:

Initializing workflow. Processing OpenStudio Measures. Applying RadianceMeasure Completed.

Searching mistakes, appears this:

[12:54:29.209758 ERROR] Perl could not be found in path, exiting

I seems like a simple mistake. Reinstalled all softwares and tried with another file and still no success. Anybody can help? Thanks!

The error is self-explanatory. You need to install Perl. (If you already have Perl installed, make sure it is added to your path.)

Note, by the way, that if you use the very latest Radiance build from LBNL, it is no longer necessary to install Perl, as the Windows Perl scripts are compiled.

Hi, Thank you for your valuable information. Now both radiance & OpenStudio measure run perfectly in simulation run. Finally it shows the results are gathered like "gathering reports completed". But there is an another issue like when I click on show simulation tab, then there is nothing created inside the folder as blank. So I have attached a link for your reference as given below. Kindly provide me some suggestion to get all those data inside the result folder. link text

Thanks, Rabi

This sounds like a separate issue. Please open a new question for it.
