My OpenStudio simulation is failing when trying to apply the "OpenStudio Results" measure. I am referring to the one that runs automatically with OS. If I apply the BCL measure of the same name, it runs, but will not show zone conditions. In place of the zone condition section it shows the text below. I seem to have more questions than answers on this forum, but any help would be appreciated.

Zone Conditions section failed and was skipped because: Optional not initialized. Detail on error follows.

Which version of OpenStudio are you using?

I am using 1.14. I ended up starting over from a previous version of my model and re-doing a lot of the same things, but somehow the new version works. It would be good to know what I did to cause this, but for the short term, things are working again. The error happened after geometries were complete. After I applied space types and schedules to all my spaces, renamed them, fixed convexity errors and bad surface errors, added Tstats, and applied the radiant with DOAS HVAC script. I worked backwards to see if I could isolate the problem to no avail.

If you have the OSM that caused this issue and wouldn't mind sending it to us we can take a look and see what was happening.
