I read the post regarding running a simulation by using c#, but since in new versions, runmanager has been omitted, how can I do that? Specifically, I want to load an existing Openstudio model, implement some measures and run the simulation and rad the results using C#. is that possible?

Maybe not the answer you're looking for, but since no one else has replied...

One option is to make a system call to the OpenStudio CLI. You just have to write a workflow JSON file in C# that describes your seed model and the (openstudio, reporting, etc.) measures you want to apply, and then call the CLI. Documentation on the CLI can be found here.
