OpenStudio LSAT Setup with U Drive

When I try and run the LSAT from the command line on my work network, it looks to my U drive for the aws_config file instead of my C:\Users... directory. How can I get it to look in the right location no matter what network I am on?

Can you specify which commands you're running specifically, and which version of the principle repo you're using?

I am trying to run bundle exec rake run and it is with the 2.1.0 OpenStudio server version

What repository are you trying to run it in? The OpenStudio Analysis Spreadsheet repo? Also, are you using the LTS version, or the one under active development?

I am using the one under active development, and can I check what repository I am trying to run it on?

This is likely due to a work network changing the HOME environment variable to U:\ when you connect. I haven't figured out why this happens or how to stop it globally without dealing with work IT.

I've addressed this on my computer by creating a HOME environment variable and setting it to C:\users\myusername

On Windows, this is found under:

  • Start
  • right click Computer
  • Properties
  • Advanced system settings
  • Environment Variables
