Hi!

I'm trying to get my model to run with a measure created by Burak Gunay, William O'Brien and Ian Beausoleil-Morrison, see: measure code. The script is integrating advanced occupant models in to OpenStudio and I am getting the error: "Process exited with a non-zero exit code of: 1" when running the model.

When I right click the error and click "open directory", the "stderr" file says:

DL is deprecated, please use Fiddle
C:/Users/Sindre/AppData/Local/Temp/OpenStudio.aF9452/resources/run/4-UserScript-0/mergedjob-1/user_script.rb:334:in `run': undefined method `getString' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
from mergedjob-0/in.rb:372:in `<main>'`

Any ideas how to solve this?

The lines causing the error are:

#get window material name
$WindowMaterials = workspace.getObjectsByType("WindowMaterial:SimpleGlazingSystem".to_IddObjectType)
$WindowMaterialName = $WindowMaterials[0].getString(0).to_s

Does your model have WindowMaterial:SimpleGlazingSystem objects in it? If not, getObjectsByType would return nil, which will throw a NoMethodError when getString is called. Probably the easiest fix is to change your window materials to that type.

Hi Eric. No, the model did not have WindowMaterial:SimpleGlazingSystem in it. I changed the window to this, and it solved the problem - at least got further in the simulation process. Unfortunately, I now got 12 new errors:

The measure is making a malformed Daylighting:Controls object. Compare lines 173 - 192 of the measure with the input fields for that object. You might want to contact the measure authors about a fix.

Thanks Eric. I'm in contact with the authors :)
