Not getting desired stress analysis simulation (Solidworks premium)

I have Solidworks premium 2012 and I am using the simulation add-on to do a study. I was able to get rid of most of the issues I've had with meshing and mating (I had to treat most members as beams for analysis). Now, my issue is that when I simulate this structure, it gives me a very weird response and I'm not sure if I've done something wrong in the assembly or it is maybe my simulation settings. I have tried everything I can think of to try and analyze this structure. I would just like to add some forces on the cross beams and on the roof (seperate studies if necessary) and get a simple stress analysis that works (deformation, von mises stresses). Thank you very much in advance for your help, since I really need it!


Also, let me know if my upload worked, because I uploaded only the assembly file and I'm not sure if I also have to upload all of the individual parts as well (there are quite a few). Thanks in advance for the help!
