Hello, I try to run the workflow example file, as directed in the command line interface documentation. i got an error: C:\openstudio-2.7.0\Examples\compact_osw>"C:\openstudio-2.7.0\bin\openstudio.exe" run -w "C:\openstudio-2.7.0\Examples\compact_osw\compact.osw" [14:43:49.424907 WARN] Measure couldn't find the construction named 'EXTERIOR-WALL adj exterior wall insulation' in the exterior surface hash.

while running the seed file from the OpenstudioApp no error occurred. Can you tell me please what is the reason for this error?

The error is in the message - you need to add the 'construction named 'EXTERIOR-WALL adj exterior wall insulation' construction to your model.

The likely cause is the .osw file has the name of the construction hard-coded, which isn't an available construction in the model when you run the measure on the CLI. When using the app, the measure inputs are populated from the model and you select from a drop-down, so the construction name is there. My guess is there is a subtle rename of that construction or it it just not in the model you are using with the .osw file.
