I'm with a big doubt. I'm using the Skecthup 2017, Open Studio V.6.0 and E+ V8.9.

Well, I'm trying to do a simple simulation and I did everything in Sketchup and Open Studio and the simulation runs well. When I export to E+ the following image appears.

image description "Warnings occurred on translation to EnergyPlus

Warning: OS_ProgramControl is not currently translated"

Then, When I try to run on E+, the error is

"Program Version,EnergyPlus, Version 8.9.0-40101eaafd, YMD=2018.10.25 07:04, *** Warning: Node connection errors not checked - most system input has not been read (see previous warning). *** Fatal error -- final processing. Program exited before simulations began. See previous error messages. *** EnergyPlus Warmup Error Summary. During Warmup: 0 Warning; 0 Severe Errors. *** EnergyPlus Sizing Error Summary. During Sizing: 0 Warning; 0 Severe Errors. *** EnergyPlus Terminated--Fatal Error Detected. 0 Warning; 0 Severe Errors; Elapsed Time=00hr 00min 0.16sec"

I don't what can be happening. Someone know?

If your OpenStudio simulation was successful, then it has already generated an EnergyPlus input file. In the folder where your .osm file is saved, there should be a folder with the same name as your .osm (My Model folder for My Model.osm, e.g.). In that folder, the run folder will contain the .idf, which is the input file for EnergyPlus. You should be able to run this directly in EP-Launch.

To resolve your issue with the translated EnergyPlus file, in the same folder as the .idf that caused your error messages there should be a .audit file with the same name. Search for "error", "fatal", "fail", etc. in this audit file to see if there are any clues as to what is wrong with the translated EnergyPlus file.
