I've been issued a new machine, running the Windows 10 OS. xEsoView is not working for me on it. It pretty much worked fine on my old machine running Windows 7. On my new machine, it opens and I can use some functionality (e.g. filter, click on a variable and view the graph). But, if I click on any of the drop down menus at the top of the UI (e.g. Copy) - the program freezes without error message, and I have to kill it in the Task Manager. I have tried running in compatibility mode, but haven't had improvement with that so far. Have you solved this problem? Recommendations for what to use instead? Thanks for any suggestions!

If xEsoView isn't working, then I would recommend trying DesignBuilder's Results Viewer tool. It's free, and I've been using it on my Windows 7 OS without issues to view ESO and HTML files. These can be generated by EnergyPlus directly or through an interface other than DesignBuilder.
