Hi all. I can not run EnergyPlus simulation from Euclid extension for Sketch Up. When i press the "Run" button in "Run simulation" window in Sketchup , a DOS screen "C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe" appears without any content, followed by the appearance of EP-Launch of previous simulation. That's it. The IDF file run well in EP-Launch directly. Can you help me please? Thanks! I am using Euclid 0.9.3, Energy Plus 8.7 and Sketch Up 2016 in Win 10.

edit: thanks Admin, i can upload an illustrative image now. image description

Normally the EP-Launch application should not appear when you try to run a simulation. That makes me suspect that you don't have your preferences set up correctly to run EnergyPlus. Open the Preferences dialog by clicking on the menu item at Extensions/Euclid/Preferences. I'm guessing the EnergyPlus Engine "Path" field is pointing to EP-Launch when it should be EnergyPlus. Click the Browse button and locate the energyplus.exe file in the EnergyPlus installation directory, and then click the Apply button. The path should be something like this: C:/EnergyPlusV8-9-0/energyplus.exe NOTE: If you select a version other than 8.7.0, you will get a warning message for Euclid 0.9.3 and earlier. You can ignore this warning; everything should still work the same for most recent versions of EnergyPlus.
