Hello everyone,

I am attempting to run a Radiation map for a building; I get the falsecolor window, but all images are in white/gray/black.  I have been looking for a check box to enable the pseudo color image but I cannot find it.  I do get an error when running the simulation (please see attached images).  Any thoughts on how to get this running properly?

Thanks all,

Hi Reinhardt,

The error you see in your second screenshot is the reason for the problem. The wxFalsecolor software expects to be able to find certain Radiance binaries and library files, but it cannot. You should be able to fix this by making sure that the following two directory paths are contained within your PATH and RAYPATH variables,

  • c:\DIVA\Radiance\lib\
  • c:\DIVA\Radiance\bin\

Searching something like, "setting windows environment variables" on a search engine comes up with lots of resources to help if you haven't done it before.




Both the PATH and RAYPATH variables contain the bin and lib directories.  I did locate the helvet.fnt file in the directory; still I get the error.

Perhaps it is important to note that I am accessing Rhino/Diva via remote desktop; could this have an implication?

I ran an error check and found the following:

Faulting application name: Rhino.exe, version: 5.6.31009.15315, time stamp: 0x5255838e

Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7601.18247, time stamp: 0x521eaf24

Exception code: 0xc0000374

Fault offset: 0x00000000000c4102

Faulting process id: 0x9b0

Faulting application start time: 0x01cf407ffbf31ee8

Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Rhinoceros 5 (64-bit)\System\Rhino.exe

Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll

Report Id: dfa5e6d8-ac74-11e3-951e-b8ac6fa27a1e

I hope this helps!  Thanks for the help,


Hi Reinhardt,

Hmm, honestly I am not sure what is happening then. I would say to (1) make sure that the directories are placed in PATH and RAYPATH for both system and user level environment variables. (2) Also make sure that all users on your computer have access to the files in those directories by way of permissions.
