I am trying to simulate an .idf file that has been exported from DB, Version 5 (i.e. compatible for E+ 8.6), and has components added from the sample 5ZoneSwimmingPool.idf file. At first I had two "pools" - a pool and a hot tub, but took the hot tub out, when I read in another thread that two pool definitions in E+ 8.6 can cause the crash. I now only have one pool component and when I run the simulation, it crashes. My errors are all warnings - I do not see severe or fatal errors and I'm not sure what needs to be corrected next.

Does anyone know what is likely causing the crash? What should my next steps be to correct this issue?

Thanks!

@jgmodel please use a code block instead of 10 images to paste the content of the eplusout.err. A code block is something that starts with 4 spaces.

@Julien Marrec thanks - is that the right formatting, or should the rest of the code also be in a box, the way the title is (i.e. "Program Version, ...)?

Everything in a code block like I just did. Except our error file is too long for the post, I suggest truncating the portions that aren't relevant or repetitive. Otherwise you can upload the eplusout.err somewhere and include the link to it.
