contours in .map format

I'm having trouble creating contours in .map format for use in WAsP or WindFarmer. This is what I tried:

Download US Elevation Data (NED)
File menu>generate contours and selected contour interval of 60m
File menu>export data>Export WAsP map
tried to open in WindFarmer and the file apparently loads, but there is nothing on the screen.

Any suggestions?

    I'm not too familiar with WindFarmer, I'm assuming it does support the WaSP map format correct? Is there some separate setting somewhere in it to enable contour line display, or perhaps it only supports loading roughness areas from WaSP .map files and just ignores contours. You might try providing the .map file to their technical support and see if they have any comments.
