I am working with the NREL 5MW turbine and have used the test18.fst file to generate an output file in FAST 8.15. I have tried running MExtreme with this .out-file, but I get an error in matlab stated as follows:

Index exceeds matrix dimensions.

Error in GrabInputFileHeaderInfo (line 44)
FileInfo.ChanNames{Ch} = temp{1}{Ch};

Error in ParseEESettingsFile (line 240)
[ FileInfo, errStat, errMsg ] = GrabInputFileHeaderInfo( FileInfo );

Error in MExtremes (line 38)
[Settings, FileInfo, EEvTable, EEvChart, errStat, errMsg] = ParseEESettingsFile(SettingsFile);

The problem is due to the .out-file, as I have no problem running the .out-files included in the Certtest folder of MExtreme.

Best regards

Dear Jacob.Killerup,

When I ran MExtreme, the same trouble to me.

Could you tell me how to deal with it?

Looking forward,
