I upgraded my DIVA installation recently, and right away noticed an issue with the Archsim libraries in Grasshopper. When I launch the Archsim library component, instead of seeing the dialogue box I get the window (attached) and can't get any further with the library.
All of my old grasshopper energy models now get an output error in the E+ component that says "1. Solution exception:Object reference not set to an instance of an object" and the simulation won't start.
There error seems to be associated with the library component, because if I copy the old Archsim component assembly from my previous installation (ArchsimGH.gha) and swap it for the new component assembly in the ...DIVA\64bitPluginFiles\ArchSim directory, the library opens again. I do get an error from the library component, but if I create a new simulation from scratch (all new components) I don't get the E+ error and I can run simulations.
However, if I try to do anything with the library -- such as import my previous libraries -- the E+ error returns and simulations won't run. My existing files that all worked fine a few months ago are also coming up with errors. Just in case, I've attached an exported library that I was using last spring: RTZlibrary.json
I'm using a recently updated Rhino 5 64-bit and a recently updated Grasshopper. I've been using older simulation files and libraries for years after DIVA 4 came out, and never had any issues like this after updates.
Maybe an installation bug? Thoughts?
I'll be introducing this software to a large group of students soon and I want to make sure everything is working smoothly.
Hi Rauland, the Server Busy warnings are different and not related to Archsim/DIVA.
I suspect a bug in R6/Rhino common cause those. Some users including myself were able to get rid of them by Turing off Automatic updates in Rhino.
