Hello All,

I am using MATLAB 2019a and EnergyPlus 9.0.1 on Windows 10 and trying to install MLE+ on it. I downloaded the git repository from

Following the installation procedure, I run "installMLEP.m" script and set the EnergyPlus path and Java path. Then I run mlep.m to run the GUI.

But I am getting an error 'Error loading mlep settings. Please run "setupMlep.m" again.

I check the mlep.m code, where the file is trying to get the settings/path from either the MLEPSETTINGS.mat or setupMlep.m. In my case, I have MLEPSETTING.mat and does load properly. But the problem is that the script is looking for fields - versionProtocol, versionEnergyPlus, eplusDir, javaDir.

None of these fields are in the MLEPSETTING.mat and hence throw me error. Now, I can write these fields myself in the MLEPSETTING.mat but I am not sure what these values are and how they are used in the program in general.

Do you have any solution for the error?
