Can you verify that there is or isn't energy charged liquid flowing in that zone?

Are you getting ANY heat? or none at all? Was it added to an existing run? You can only go so far with a single run, otherwise it will cool off too much. Did you bleed them to get the air out? Make sure there no valves turned off? make sure the pumps working....etc....there is a lot to check to verify everything is working properly first. What's your boiler Aquastat set at? what's your water temperature?

Try adjusting the aquastat differential to 25 for the longer run. Moving the tstat to the coldest room will only overheat the rooms on the circuit before it. You probably should have a separate zone for that cold area.
