I am trying to access the detailed reports for the output variables in an energy model, but after hitting the DView button on the results tab of Openstudio I get an error message the states there is an unknown error. I opened a different project and did not have this problem, so it is the files for this one project that there is an error. The error messages are attached. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@hoffmann1320 Please state OS version and what Units you use?

IP units and Version 2.3.0

@hoffmann1320 Could you post a link to your model?

@hoffmann1320 Using OS 2.3.0 I was able to open Dview from within your model in OS both in SI and IP. Maybe try to reinstall OS or upgrade to 2.4.0 (also checked it and it is working) But you are not the only one suffering some bugs from Dview integration. I have some models that act weird in IP units.

DView continues to receive updates as to the characters which it can "translate" when changing from SI to IP units. Let me know of any future issues you may have.

@eweaver For instance this model throws a lot errors when trying to open Dview with IP units.

"kgWater/kgDryAir" is now handled. Please install OpenStudio 2.4.1 to get the latest DView version.
