Dear DIVA Community:

I have two questions concerning diva/grasshopper. Hope it's OK to post only one discussion. Please read through both my questions before putting any effort. Thank you in advance. 

1) Failure of DA Calculation:

I am following Tutorial 4, DIVA Grasshopper 04 DaylightAutonomyCalculations, and run into an error as below: 

1. Batch file written to directory:
Run failed.
The pipe has been ended.

daylight coefficient calculation failed
raytrace loop encountered a break at 0

One of my friends uses my model on her computer, and it runs smoothly. So I assume there might be something wrong with either my environment or installation, which brings up my second question below. I still attached both the Rhino model and diva/grasshopper file here, just in case. From the files you can see I've successfully run a point-in-time simulation before DA calculation. 

Similar posts titles I already tried include the out-of-memory issue (, as my new computer should be powerful to run this simple model, and the bad object issue (

2) Installation Error

An error I ran into during my installation is attached as a jpg in this post. I installed DIVA and obtained the 6-month license. However, when I drag C:\DIVA\64bitPluginFiles\DIVA_R5 into Rhino 5, the error happens. My current solution is to run C:\DIVA\64bitPluginFiles\DIVA_R5 directly to open other models. However, this temporary solution doesn't seem to work well. The Rhino I installed is in Chinese. However, I don't consider this as an issue given that my friend runs my model pretty good in her Chinese Rhino.

Apologize for my long email. I hope I provide sufficient information for your reference. 

Thank you very much
