ClimateStudio Optimization Error in Wallacei


I am using ClimateStudio for daylight and energy simulation. Whenever I am running Wallacei to iterate through the genes, I am getting daylight result error. Wallacei is successfully iterating the genes, and energy results are being read; however, daylight simulation is not being conducted. An error on the ‘Run CS daylight’ is popping up:
“1. Solution exception:The calling thread must be STA, because many UI components require this.”

It is to mention that, I tried Octopus to run both daylight and energy simultaneously using the same script, and it is working. Also, I tried Galapagos to check if I see any error for daylight simulation. But it worked too. I have attached the files herewith for reference.

Hi Aman

There seems to be an incompatibility issue between these two plugins (primarily around the UIs of both)… without going into too much jargon, the short answer is that you may not be able to use the ‘Run CS daylight’ component with the current release of Wallacei. However we appreciate that this ‘incompatibility’ issue may crop up again in the future (although this is the first time we observed this) and so in future releases, we may offer a function that addresses this incompatibility.

Hi Dr Makki

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I also think so! Every time, the problem occurs when ClimateStudio (CS) prompts its UI, which Wallacei can not read (it can read cmd though). I tried several ways, but failed due to incompatibility issues. I was trying to write a short script so that wallacei can recognize the UI of CS while iterating the independent variables. However, I don’t know if CS/Wallacei released any API. Solving this issue will be awesome in the future release <3. Will be waiting for that.


Hi Mohammed,

we have the same incompatibility issue with Climate Studio and Wallacei. Just for information, we also are not able to run Climate Studio with Hops and already raised an issue at Climate Studio.

Best regards
