Can't render in Revit 2011

I just installed the last version of Indigo with support for Revit 2011, but can't render a single image.
When I use it in my existing project I get the error:

(see files indigo.project.01)

When I try to do it with the more complex model, the error is different (indigo.project.02)

How do I deal with these errors?

Thank you

Hey swazy,

the first issue looks like a text encoding problem. What is the language of your Revit and and Operating system?

The second issue is a know one: the "Model tried to use undefined mesh 'RevitMesh'." Error appears when there was, for some reason, no geometry exported at all.

Is the model the only thing (or only visible thing) in your project?
Is it possible for you to provide that project so we can have a look at it and find out what exactly is goin on?

My Revit is in Russian. I attach the test file where 3 components are used:
- walls and floor slab (which are taken from standard revit library and are in russian)
- columns which I loaded from english language library

1.If you leave only columns in project and try to render it with Indigo, you'll get the mesh error
2.If you render with all elements in place, you'll receive a second error, which is coding-related.
