Has this bug in OpenStudio been fixed? The default "hard-sized" water heaters seem to be the only value that runs in the program. Whenever I autosize, or hardsize a new value of my choosing, the application crashes.

I did a search on Unmethours, and it seems a lot of people have had this problem.

This post suggested a Waterheater measure be used, but I could not locate it on BCL.

I used this methodology to hardsize my water heater, and it still crashes:

If you want to autosize, you'll have to add the WaterHeater:Sizing object as it looks like you've found. I'm not aware of a measure of BCL for this so you'll probably have to make your own. You can use this as a starting point. I wrote that one specifically for PeakDraw sizing. Hope that helps.
