    I am getting unhandled errors and I am unsuccessful in running Coolvent simulations. I believe I have successfully downloaded the required Java and Microdoft programs. Any suggestions on what else to try?

  2. Ron Maxwell says:

    I am trying to do some preliminary investigation into an open-sided auditorium in the jungles of Guyana. It will have a pitched roof and ample ridge vent in the center. The closest building type is the central atrium, but using it creates a number of unsatisfactory data input problems, such as that of the shaft width when describing building dimensions. Is it possible to create custom building types? If so, how would one go about doing it?
    Thanx!

    Hi, My company is requesting a licence agreement for CoolVent. Can you e-mail one on to me please. I am aware that it is a free download but the company has very strict IT policies and I am not permitted to download CoolVent until I can provide a licence agreement to the legal department.
    Thanks in advance,
    Sarah

  7. Rachel Migliacci says:

    Is there a way to download other locations/weather stations to input into CoolVent? My site is in Philadelphia, which isn’t listed in the sample site locations.

  8. Rachel Migliacci says:

    I keep getting an error when I run the simulation. It started occurring when I put in the weather info for Philadelphia, which I got from the suggested website and is the correct file format. Now, no matter what city I put I get this error, even after restarting program and computer. I also have tried clicking continue and results still do not show up.

    Error states: Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately. Input string was not in the correct format.

      I’ve solved this issue changing the computer configuration from europe (comma as decimal indicator) to USA (point as decimal indicator)

  9. Pipat says:

    Hello,

    We are using Cool vent to do some research on mechanical ventilation vs natural ventilation.

    We see that we can choose a hybrid ventilation strategy but see no option of selecting the number of fans or the location of fan.

    Is there any plan update to include this feature?

    Overall, fantastic work!

    • natvent says:

      Hello,

      There are no plans to include this feature, yet. However, the modification is simple enough that we might be able to include it in a future release of CoolVent.

      Thank you for your comment,
      CoolVent team

  10. Thomas says:

    Hi again..
    The results I’m getting don’t seems to be correct.
    If I leave all settings at the preinstalled settings with the exception of (Transient/Steady State) I get these results- which much be way to high flow rates!
    https://gyazo.com/62978861d6a135f2d56aed97a44c9fd1

    • natvent says:

      Hi Thomas,
      This is still related to the decimal/comma problem. You need to change the number format to “English (United States)”. I have sent a document with additional details and instructions to set this up correctly to the email address you provided. Please, check your spam folder, as it might have ended up there. Let us know if you have more/other problems.
      Regards,
      CoolVent team

  11. Daniel says:

    Hi,

    When you export the results to excel what does the “Ffa” stand for?

    • natvent says:

      This is the volumetric flowrate of air from outside. A positive number means that air comes from the outdoors to the zone, a negative number means that the air flows from the zone to the outside. Only zones that are directly connected to the outdoors are shown.

    Hello.

    What is the difference “thermal comfort limits” and “maximum, minimum temperature” in steady state simulation?

    Regards,

    Coolvent team

    • natvent says:

      Thermal comfort limits are defined in the Thermal Comfort Models tab. Maximum and minimum temperatures refer to the highest and lowest temperature in the building. They are different because the maximum temperature in the building could be below or above the comfort limit, for example. Choosing the Thermal comfort limits option will show in red the zones that are above the comfort limit and in blue the zones that are below it (according to the criteria defined in the Thermal Comfort tab). Choosing the Maximum, minimum temperature option will show in red the zone(s) with the highest temperature and in blue the zone(s) with the lowest one, regardless of how they compare to comfort limits.

    Hello,

    I’m having a problem installing CoolVent. I’ve tried it on my desktop and laptop, both of which give the error posted below.

    It looks like the same problem that Lee Fithian posted in October of 2015, but I assume I have the latest version of the software.

    I installed the Java Runtime Environment and made sure my .NET framework is up to date, so I don’t think either of those is the problem.

    Thanks,

        Trying to install Coolvent but get the following error… (same as Ben Hoyle)
        the suggested solution is always: This problem is fixed by uninstalling CoolVent, downloading it again and installing it.
        but what if it’s the first time you install and get this error?! I can’t uninstall an older version.
        Is installing the program on a Dutch (NL) desktop system a problem for Coolvent?
        Thanks,

          after updating and fiddling (java-settings) I managed to install the program the next day. cann’t tell what exactly did the trick alas.. could be the updated win 10 defender which now provided a pop-up with an override button..

    Hello, when I try the Visualize Results button, it returns are error about a missing temperatureoutput.txt file:

    System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not find file ‘C:\Users\[redacted]\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\WEDM6Y61.XGE\LMHPTGPO.K2H\cool..tion_15fcb40985314d72_0004.0002_1ea15cbf1349c362\TemperatureOutput.txt’.

    The steps were:
    – start Coolvent
    – click the Calculate inputs button
    – click the Visualize results button

    This occurs when running under an admin account and a user account.

    Thanks,
    Andy

    I’ve had the same problem when I tried to run CoolVent by clicking on the default desktop shortcut, but when I run CoolVent.exe from C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\Q0YL7EVJ.2Z6\4Q11VXL2.7AY\cool..tion_15fcb40985314d72_0004.0002_9e4d8ff274743497 everything works as expected.

    Windows 10 64-bit
    JRE 8u121 Windows 10 x64
    Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1

    Workaround:
    1. Delete the original shortcut.
    2. Open C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\Q0YL7EVJ.2Z6\4Q11VXL2.7AY\cool..tion_15fcb40985314d72_0004.0002_9e4d8ff274743497. Replace “%username%” with your actual username.
    3. Right-click on CoolVent.exe.
    4. (a) “Create shortcut” and move the shortcut to the desktop, and/or (b) “Pin to start”.

    Best regards,
    Ivan
