Hi,

This error is generated because the Heating setpoint temperature (26degC) is higher than the Cooling setpoint temp (24degC).
You should assign the lower temperature to the Heating setpoint.

Updating the graphics card driver seems to fix it especially in W8 OS.
Despite Windows report that the graphics card driver is updated I recommend you to check and download the specific driver for your graphic card and Windows version directly from your OEM manufacturer.

Hi,

In this case it's not possible to change the output units but with the 'Show as: 2-Grid' option the results are in [Wh/m2] and they can be exported as CSV spreadsheet and then compared with others.

Here is an equivalence between units.
1 kWh/m2= 1 000 Wh/m2 = 1 (Wh/m2)x10^3

Hi, It doesn't matter if it's 32bit or 64bit but it's recommended to use the same E+ version. DBv3.2 uses E+v7.2.
