[TRNSYS-users] TRNbuild problem

   When TRNBuild generates the Type56 files, it places the .inf, .bld, and 
.trn files all in the same location as the .bui file. If you aren't getting 
an .inf file when you save your .bui file, I would suggest that you send 
the .bui to your distributor to see if they can find the problem.

   As a side note, very thin walls as well as very thick walls can 
sometimes cause problems in generating the Type56 files. Interior wood 
doors or steel garage doors are often the offending walls.

Kind regards,
