I got a problem about Openstudio running. I am using Openstudio 1.14.0. When the DDY file is imported, the Energyplus simulation can be completed, but the Openstudio running is failed. The stderr gives me following error:

 DL is deprecated, please use Fiddle

  (erb):112:in `block in run': undefined method `gsub' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)

from (erb):110:in `each'

from (erb):110:in `run'

from C:/Program Files/OpenStudio 1.14.0/ruby-install/ruby/lib/ruby/2.0.0/erb.rb:849:in `eval'

from C:/Program Files/OpenStudio 1.14.0/ruby-install/ruby/lib/ruby/2.0.0/erb.rb:849:in `result'

from C:/Users/w_lin13/AppData/Local/Temp/OpenStudio.aF8640/resources/run/6-UserScript-0/user_script.rb:235:in `run'

from in.rb:396:in `<main>'

When the DDY file removed and there is no HVAC system, both of Energyplus and Openstudio can be completed successfully. When the DDY file removed and there is HVAC system, the Energyplus cannot be completed, and the eplusout.err gives me following errs:

Program Version,EnergyPlus, Version 8.6.0-198c6a3cff, YMD=2017.01.02 18:17,IDD_Version 8.6.0

How should I fix the problems?

I'm getting the same stderr output but the EnergyPlus simulation is running to completion.

I'm running:

Ruby 2.3.3-p222-x64 Win 7 Enterprise 64-bit OS 1.13 and 1.14 64-bit (same result)

I've tried creating a very simple model from Sketchup to OpenStudio and running a model which I believe ran fine in OS 1.11 and nothing that looks problematic from EnergyPlus run.

I don't see anything on the link posted by Bo_Lin that looks like my problem.

Did anyone solve this?

I understand that DDY file is necessary for sizing HVAC system. The problem is: when I add the DDY file Energyplus can be completed without any error but Openstudio is failed and Openstudio result cannot show up.

Bo, this is not an answer (or a link-only answer) and should be a comment instead please.
