Os missing measure

Hey guys,

For some reason my OS keeps send me and error message telling me that the measure that I'm using is been executed from some random location on my local disk. The folder that OS tells me that the measure is located is empty and i though that maybe i was going to lose my project D: because i cant delete the measure or run the model.

I copy the entire code on a new .osm file and I could save most of my work but I lose the measure and now I have to re write it. I don't know the reason behind this, any ideas or advice on how to solve this?

PS: This is what happens when I try to Use the measure tab

OpenStudio does run from a temporary directory but it sounds like some has gone wrong in your model. There is a directory next to your OSM with the same name. Try to delete that directory and then the re-open your OSM. Then re-import the measure from either the BCL or from "My Measures".

Thanks David :D, I'm always careful whit my models and try to be very organized with the routes of each model to avoid this kind of stuff. I don't know what happen with this one.

I don't know that you did anything wrong. We need to make the project database that is in that directory more robust.
