I am not able to get the Openstudio results in the Results summary page, which now displays just the Energyplus results as follows:


Previously, when this happened (rarely) in the older versions, I used the 'scan for tools' option under the Preferences tab to locate the latest version of EnergyPlus and Ruby. This option isn't available under OS 2.0.0, in the Menu.

Is there a workaround to this for the new version different from OS 1.14? Or is there something else that has to be done to get the Openstudio results summary?

I just checked the Open issues page in github, and the poor formatting and rendering seems to have been reported over here ( However, the users in that issue seem to be able to access Openstudio results as well, which I'm not able to for some reason.

You might not have the "OpenStudio results" html page available because in OS 2.0.0 it isn't added by default, you have to manually add it by going to the Measures tab. As far as the display problem, it should be discussed on the github issue, but you might want to open the eplustbl.htm directly in your web browser of choice as it will more than likely display just fine there (I suspect it's an OS problem - on windows, not on mac - and not an E+ one)

And no, there's no scan for tools anymore, it isn't needed. See this commit (diffed) that removed it

I had indeed not added the Openstudio results in the Measures tab. Thanks @JulienMarrec!

No problem! After all OS 2.0 is new major release so changes like this one are expected and inevitable (and welcomed in this case). It'll take a minute to adjust fully :)
