[EnergyPlus_Support] decimal values

Hello all EnergyPlus users,

let me introduce myself. I am Carmen Herrero, a spanish mechanical 
engineer. Recently i have downloaded EnergyPlus and i´m still reading 
the pdf files to learn how to use it. The first time i have tried to 
simulate an easy example to play with the variables i have found a 
difficulty that maybe is silly for all of you, more experienced users.
In my model i have chosen a "design day" simulation and i have not 
been able to type the data for latitude, longitude, wind speed...etc. 
All data requiring decimal expresion is imposible for me to introduce 
because the idf editor window does not recognice the comma. So, when 
i try to introduce a wind speed for that day of 2.2 m/s i can only 
write 22 m/s (which is not obviously the same). And the same when i 
try to introduce the latitude of Madrid (40º 30')i write 40.5 but it 
reads 405.
Maybe it is my computer configuration, I don´t know. But if you 
happen to imagine what it can be, i will be very grateful to hear 
your advices.
Thanks a lot.
