[TRNSYS-users] Problem when using a different *.b17 file

  There isn't anything wrong with the *.b17 and once you have got a 
*.b17 the *.idf is no longer relevant (unless you need to make geometry 
changes or want to use the sketchup result viewer. My guess would be 
that the Studio project file (*.tpf) is corrupted. Try creating a new 
(empty) Studio project then drag out Type56 (Loads and Structures: 
Multi-Zone Building: Type56), then open the External Files tab and point 
it toward your *.b17 file. If you want to be nice to TRNSYS, type the 
entire path to the *.b17 file.
