I am trying to convert the following IDF file (an ASHRAE 90.1 prototype) from version 8.0 to 9.0 using the IDF Version Updater which comes with EnergyPlus 9.0 installation.

But I am getting the following error - Error starting Transition-Vx-x-x Program: 2

Initially the conversion was failing at the first conversion (that is from V8.0 to V8.1). Then I downloaded these set of files and followed the instructions. Now it works fine until V8.4 but gives the same error after that.

I can see that the files that I downloaded from the above link only include transition files upto V8.4. The rest of the transition files on my computer (from V8.5 to V9.0) are from the EnergyPlus 9.0 installation. Can someone point me to the updated transition files or any other way to fix this problem?

There is a known problem with the v9.0.1 transition programs (for transitions from v8.9 or older). See #7010 for a workaround.
