I have just had Hevacomp installed on my computer and I am attempting to run my first test calculation with CIBSEGain when I get the following error:
"Cannot use program as selected room uses glazing that has no solar gain factor values set"
I believe I have set up the room correctly, and have added a window and specified it as Glass Type 14. Hence I believe that all required glazing data should be known as I am simply referencing one of the programs built in glazing types. When I check 'glazing data' I can see that all of the required solar gain factor values are already known, for this Glass Type.
This error seems to occur regardless of which Glass Type I select, or which program I run.
Could you please advise how I can resolve this error in order to run the calculation?
I have never come across this error before to be honest. Could you please reply with a screenshot of the error message, and also forward the project folder in question to the following link and I will inspect it:

I have now uploaded the project folder and screenshot onto the Sharefile website.
Please let me know if you need more information to assist.
The Solar Gain Factors that the error message refers to are in glazing data. These seems to have been deleted in your project as below:
These figures are essential to the accuracy of design database calculations. You will need to ensure they are entered appropriately, or use another existing type.
Information on the Glazing data can be found here.
