  One thing I would try off the top of my head is to set the notify level up higher:


  and see if any warnings are being overlooked. A common problem many people have is that
osgDEM.exe is not in their path or can't be run for some reason.

  Also, you might try launching OSGDEM by itself (as you originally did before upgrading
to the whole VPB kit) with the same input data, and make sure it doesn't report any
issues. OSGDEM can be easier to debug since it's just one local process and not a
distributed build.
