I get the error as mentioned below when I try applying DOE Proto building measure? What could be the reason for this?

"Folder paths are incorrect. Standards Cannot continue."

I tried deleting the DOE building prototype measure and downloading it again. It did not work. Can anyone suggest a solution?

@Vishak what version of OpenStudio are you using? If you are using 2.5.0, then please upgrade to 2.5.1. If you are using a 2.4.x version, that should work or you can also upgrade to 2.5.1.

If you are not using 2.5.0, can you specify what application you are running the measure, from and what building type, standard, and climate zone you are usig.

I am using 2.5.0. Shall update the version shortly to run the measure.

If you look carefully at the measure's page in BCL at its bottom you will see that: image description

Which states that the measure is broken since April 2017.

Unfortunately, I was deleting the one copy I had which was actually working in OS 2.4.0 trying to replicate your observance.
