dctimestep error

Hi All,

Did any one come across below error from the sky matrix file, while executing the dctimestep?

dctimestep -n 8760 Geometry/vmx/photocells.vmx 2011-SA5.XML matrices/south.dmx mannheim.smx > matrices/Satine_Dark_Grey_White.dat

fatal - unexpected EOF reading mannheim.smx

I created smx file with gendaymtx with out any error.

If i use a sky vector then i don’t see any error.

Is it some thing to do with the time steps and header in smx file?

Try it without the “-n 8760” option, which shouldn’t be needed.
