Solar Radiation

I have been solving a steady state internal electronics cooling problem using 2007 floworks 64 bit windows version.

Is there supposed to be a SOLAR radiation check box under general settings > radiation?

I ran a few analysis with radiation, environmental radiation on. Specified solar opening radiative surfaces, but the radiation flux is always zero. The online manual says
" Select solar radiation check box to enable directional radiation from ambient space..." But I could not find the check box.

Also played with default wall radiative surface condition: Non radiative and wall to ambient. Nothing moved the needle.

Thanks in advance for any help, tips and tricks.
