genBSDF and rcontrib errror on Windows 10

Hi Radiance Online,

I have been getting a recurring error while trying to run genBSDF through the git bash console on a Windows 10 system. I have searched through quite a few forums, and of these Radiance-Online repository’s, however no-one seems to have had quite the same error. I get the following error:

[email protected] MINGW64 ~
$ C:/ladybug/Hyderabad/100mm_shading_screen/MSH2RADFiles/blinds.rad > C:/ladybug/Hyderabad/100mm_shading_screen/MSH2RADFiles/blinds_2.xml
rcontrib: system - cannot find function file "": Invalid argument
C:/ladybug/BSDF/genBSDF.WPQU9v/behind.dat: cannot load matrix
C:\Radiance\bin\rmtxop.exe: operation failed on 'C:/ladybug/BSDF/genBSDF.WPQU9v/behind.dat'
Failure running rmtxop at /c/Radiance/bin/ line 463.

I have changed the temp directory away from the traditional path variable in-case I didn’t have the right run-permissions for that folder. On our system, the C:/ladybug has read, write and execute permissions. Clearly this didn’t address the problem. My PATH and RAYPATH environment variables are as echoed:

$ echo $PATH
/c/Users/jamessheldon/bin:/mingw64/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/mingw64/bin:/usr/bin:/c/Users/jamessheldon/bin:/c/Radiance/bin:/c/Program Files (x86)/Panda Security/WaAgent/Common:/c/Users/jamessheldon/AppData/Local/Programs/Python/Python35-32/Scripts:/c/Users/jamessheldon/AppData/Local/Programs/Python/Python35-32:/c/Radiance/bin:/c/DAYSIM/bin:/c/Accelerad/bin:/c/Strawberry/c/bin:/c/Strawberry/perl/bin:.:/usr/bin/vendor_perl:/usr/bin/core_perl

[email protected] MINGW64 ~
$ echo $RAYPATH
.;C:\Accelerad\lib; C:\Radiance\lib;

I also receive the same error when trying to run the accelerad version of genBSDF. I am struggling to find a way of progressing with this error, as we get no further feedback from an error console or event viewer. Thanks in advance for any assistance :blush:

Warm Regards,
