Hi I have had difficulty getting the residential library installed with OpenStudio 2.4.3. I found that I had to edit the rakefile to add "require 'OpenStudio'" to get it to add the residential measures into OS. After this small change, everything seem to be added in except for a warning "Warning: There are 2 measures missing in 'workflows/measure-info.json': ResidentialGeometryFromFloorspaceJS,ResidentialPhotovoltaics". Is this significant and is there a work around?

You don't have to run the rakefile task until you are planning to do development on the measures (i.e., make changes to them). You can just download/clone the measures and run them as is.

That said, the warning about those 2 measures is safe to ignore. Currently these 2 measures (to model PV and interact with the FloorspaceJS tool) are not available, hence the warnings. (The PV measure should be available in a month or so, we're just waiting on the PVWatts model to be available in an OpenStudio release.)
