I've got this project that I need to complete within the next 24 hours and it keeps failing when it comes up to the EnergyPlus simulation. I tried previous saved files of my model and it fails at the same point so I have no clue what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated!

This is the output that I am currently getting. It stops at 75% every single time.

If you require the file to help me out, I am able to provide it. Thanks.

As @MatthewSteen has stated, posting the portion of the .err file that flags the specific errors that EnergyPlus is experiencing is necessary to further diagnose the problem your model is having. It's also helpful to search for those specific errors before asking a question; Your error may have already come up before with a detailed answer already provided.
