Hi! I've been trying to access the server of Strusoft from AC26 and AC25 to download the local data of Lisbon, but the climate data window prompts the following message (this message appears on the other computers of the office too):
Does anyone know how what might be happening? Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. Our hosting provider is changing the underlying network architecture forcing us to move to their new solution. The fix is planned to be rolling out for Archicad 25 and 26 in updates and in the Archicad 27 release as well.
I stumbled across the same issue a few days ago. This update is sorely needed, as many of the download sites for climate data are either no longer available or now cost money. Furthermore, several of the free files contain data from the 1930s (US) and 1980s (US and Europe). The data set I could find for Berlin, Germany contains complete data sets for 1984, 85, and 86. In times of climate change, I am not certain how useful it is to simulate with ancient data. That also is a question to the graphisoft climate data provider.
Thanks for noticing this issue.
Please let us know when the climate data will be available. We need to keep doing our job and, at least in my office, depend on this simulation system to take energy design decisions.
The fix for this will be available in the upcoming release for Archicad 26:
List of Improvements in Archicad 26 Updates – Graphisoft (DEF-11315 ECO DESIGNER: Climate Data by Strusoft Climate Server was provided from a disconnected IP-address.)
You're right, I can experience the same.
This issue was fixed in Archicad 26 Update 3, however, if Update 2 had been installed previously, the fix doesn't apply, a manual adjustment is needed in the Registry Editor (Windows) or Prefs Editor (macOS) in order to connect to the proper Climate Data Server address.
The developers are currently working on a solution for the next update that would carry out the fix with the installer, so no manual adjustment would be required.
Please use the following workaround in the meantime:
*If you use a different language version of Archicad, you have to locate the EnergyEvaluation directory for your localized Archicad, e.g. ...\Archicad 26.0.0 UKI R1\...

thank you very much for your post. I am running AC26 International 5003 on macOS Ventura (13.2.1) on Apple Silicon. I applied your changes exactly. The result was a very long spinning BeachBall and, after about 2min, the following floating palette:
It appears as if this fix is still not working.
