Hi, gokuthessj

Yes, if you want to use custom materials for your model you have to create materials (to do this use "Materials and Surface Manager"). Also you should  to map objects on your model to materials, that you defined (to do this use "Edit materials mappings" plugin menu item).

The error is: "Access to the Path 'C:\Program Files|Walash Ltd|AutoCAD to FDS plugin\fdsPlugin.config' is denied."

I'm not 100% sure, but may be this file is Read Only. You can try to make it writable. If it will give no effect, you can also try AutoCAD as administrator.
