vRay Lighting Help

Hi, this is my first time using vray and it's slowly coming along. I guess i was wondering how i could do test renders for my scene but try and keep the render times down. My first image is is with all the settings set really low, 3 vray lights(for the windows), 1 vray light within the interior. Then 1 directional max light with vray shadows turned on acting as the "Sun".It took 20min to render. Which seemed a little long seeing as all the settings were so low. The second image is with no Antialiasing, no shadows, pretty much nothing but GI and the one directional light(no shadows). This may be a little unclear so if you have any questions, i would gladly try and explain it so how better.

I think you have a problem with your vray version because it seems that you d'ont have shadows in your renders and the evermotion settings works well for me try to reinstall your vray release or contact chosgroup....
