[TRNSYS-users] TRNSYS Error message 105

   There are two parts to getting a Type in an external DLL to load and 
run properly. The first is that the dll must be located in the correct 
spot, which you have done (thank you for taking the time to look through 
the log and list files for related information and for putting 
everything in your email). The second part is that the name of the 
routines inside the dll must be correctly exported. This is something 
that the author of the Type needs to do (in this case Transsolar). If 
you recently updated from Trnsys17.1 to Trnsys17.2 then you simply need 
to ask Transsolar for an updated version of Type399.
Kind regards,
