Using CFS for thermal analysis_II

Hi Radiance experts

I'm coming with another question regarding the use of CFS (XML files) for
thermal simulations.

I posted the first part of this question in the 'Open Studio Forum' but
this time I'll try here.

I'm trying to use XML files of CFS that were generated by a
gonio-photometer based in Tregenza angle basis. Thanks to the the help of
some of you now I know that I have to transform first such file into the
Klems angle basis (using bsdf2klems) in order to be able to import it to
Window7 to then 'report' it to Energy Plus as idf file.

But... when I try to import the converted 'tregenza-to-klems' new XML file
into Window7 and calculate it, I get the message: XML error: WavelengthData
not found. Error: load BSDF layer=1
First we thought that the problem was the format of the new file (since all
the values were presented in only one column) but apparently that is not
the case.

If I try to import the file in its original format (tregenza) then i get:
the XML file contains data in the NIR wavelenght. Acceptable wavelenghts
are 'solar' and 'visible'.
I tried a normal simulation (to test the Klems converted file) and a
warning message appears before generating the rendering: BSDF klems.xml
file has 103% transmission.

I wonder if someone here have any advice to solve this.

I'd like to ask also if anybody knows if this would be the same situation
using Diva for Rhino (if the programme makes difference between Klems and
Tregenza sky subdivisions).

I'll appreciate your help.

Chantal.

Chantal,
Can you send me the xml files you're using? I suspect there might be
something wrong with the xml format.
Thanks,
Andy
