Hi folks!
I have a problem with Ecodesigner for AC 13. When i open the option "Facade Shadings", the AC shows anything in the window (look at the added image), also i didn't have a option for Activity, that shows "Missing".


I saw here in forun a similar problem ( ... codesigner) but i didn't obtain the solution.

My ArchiCAD 13 is a portuguese version.

Using my directions in the other thread, did you look in your Add-ons folder to see what EcoDesigner data files you have? Is there an INT folder with the files shown in this screenshot?

I have these 6 files in the "INT".
I'm try to rename the folder, in case of "USA". But it's not works.

What am i do?

USA would only work if you have a US license.

Go here:

to find out what kind of ED license is stored on your key. You should see something like the screenshot below for my license, showing that I have a USA version.

I would guess that yours says INT, but perhaps there is a POR or BRA version. If you see POR, e.g., try copying the folder and naming the copy POR. You will have to restart ArchiCAD to find out if it makes a difference.
