I know there have been some questions on this before, but I've not seen any related to this specific measure.

I'm attempting to run an OpenStudio measure "btap_equest_converter" to import eQuest geometry into an OS file, and I receive the following error code. Is this an issue with my Ruby version, or the measure itself?

DL is deprecated, please use Fiddle

C:/Program Files/OpenStudio 1.9.0/ruby-install/ruby/lib/ruby/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:55:in require': cannot load such file -- C:/Users/jlueker/AppData/Local/Temp/OpenStudio.xx9804/ApplyMeasureNow/UserScript/../../../../lib/btap/lib/btap.rb (LoadError) from C:/Program Files/OpenStudio 1.9.0/ruby-install/ruby/lib/ruby/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:55:inrequire' from C:/Users/jlueker/AppData/Local/Temp/OpenStudio.xx9804/ApplyMeasureNow/UserScript/user_script.rb:36:in <top (required)>' from in.rb:103:inload' from in.rb:103:in `<main>' Script executing from: C:/Users/jlueker/AppData/Local/Temp/OpenStudio.xx9804/ApplyMeasureNow/UserScript Found argument 'inp_file' with value 'C:/00Models/0715SNFCCproposed.inp'.

The message 'DL is deprecated, please use Fiddle' is a result of requiring Win32API in Ruby 2.0, it is a benign warning and out of our control to fix it. The actual error is in the backtrace where it says require': cannot load such file. As mentioned in this post the eQuest converter measure is a work in progress and that is likely the reason for this error.
