Hey all,

Trying to apply the aedg_office_hvac_vav_ch_w measure to my building and I am getting an error ("Process exited with non-zero exit code of 3"). I don't have much to go on, this is a building to which I was able to apply other AEDG measures to (e.g. WSHP w/ DOAS) without any similar problems.

Here is the advanced output from the measure output (apologies for the long text posting I lack the knowledge to even know what of the following is pertinent):

Just applied the measure to model where I had manually stripped out all the HVAC and it worked a charm. I'll leave this question up in case this is useful to anyone.

OK, So it appears i had failed to enter the ASHRAE climate zone on the site tab. when I changes that I was also able to apply to measure to a model that had preexisting HVAC.

Forgot to enter climate zone on the 'site' tab. When fixed the problem went away.
