Hi, I am using EP version 8.5.0, OS 1.11.0 on Windows 7 64-bit. When I run the simulation with the Radiance Measure (Apply Measure Now) it terminates with the following error message.


A copy of the weather file is located here: C:\Users\Vern\AppData\Local\Temp\OpenStudio.nP3000\resources\files, so I'm not sure why the script can't find it. I did not see any other Unmet Hour questions/answers that dealt with this.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Vern

The Radiance measure was not intended to be used with the "Apply Measure Now" feature. Matter of fact, it should almost always be run last in any measure workflow. Give it a try from the run tab. (Hi Vern!)

Wonder if there is any meta-data that could help enforce (or at least suggest) this.

There is, but it's not enforced, and it's being deprecated for PAT 2.0, so, there.

@rpg777, Thanks, that was the issue! I watched one of your videos before running it, so I should have realized that it needed to run in the measure workflow.
