[TRNSYS-users] TRNSYS 17- Range check error after saving building project

Dear All,

I found the actually quite simple solution, may be this could help other 
so I post it:

The original building included TRNFlow calculations.
As I do not have the TRNFlow plugin, those commands were missing in my 
modified bui file and thus invoked the range check error.

As a workaround, you can simply compare the 2 bui files and copy the 
TRNFlow part in the modified building!
Should work...
