Looks like an error on daylighting, We will look into it.

Looks like a bug, probably due to a rounding mistake in the primary & secondary daylight sensor control fraction adding up to more than 1, which EnergyPlus treats as an error, which causes the sizing run to fail and thus causes the model generation to fail. I've filed a bug and will update this answer once the bug is fixed. Should be done for the OpenStudio 2.5.0 major release in March, if not sooner.
