@Umair can you include an image to show the error message that you see in DView?

Sounds like the same issue as this. I just addressed the issue, so when the next DView release is made, the bugfix will be included.

It sounds like you are requesting an EnergyPlus timeseries output (like "Site Sky Diffuse Solar Radiation Luminous Efficacy"), which has units of "lum/W". Until there is an updated version of DView, you will have to avoid requesting this output.
