WINDOW 7.3 shut down with BSDF of Venetian blind created with genBSDF


I'm surprised that WINDOW would crash like that. But one problem is that to
import a BSDF into WINDOW it must have both front and back transmission and
reflection. To get this you should use both the +f and +b options in

Hello Everyone,

I have already created a BSDF project which contains a Venetian blind with
a genBSDF,in which I enter the geometry, the material and the glazing. To
do this I have used the next command (in addition,I attached the respective

genBSDF -n 8 materials.mat glazing.rad Layer0.rad > Case1.xml

Apparently,It worked right since I can see it in BSDF Viewer.

However , the problem happen when I connect this BSDF with the window
which contains WINDOW 7.3 software.So, when I try to add a shading since
XML file, the program shut down.

I have looked over each step but I dont know where can be the mistake.Do
you have any idea about this problem or what is happening?

Thanks you in advance,

King regards,
