Using Openstudio 2.8 and Windows 10 Pro. After run the simulation I can't see the reports on the "Results Summary" tab. I can't see the "EnergyPlus Results" nor the "Openstudio Results".

"EnergyPlus Results" appears on the drop-down menu, but the window is empty with a sad sheet icon. "Openstudio Results" doesn't appear on the drop-down menu.

The top right button "Open Dview for Detailed Reports" neither works. It returns:

"The following error code was returned while trying to read file C:\ [...]: 14 And when click "OK" s'how:

"The selected files is not of the correct format, is corrupt, no longer exist, or you do not have permission to open it." And finally opens Dview but without any data.

I tried to do the same in a laptop with windows 7 Ultimate and all works except for the "Openstudio Results" that neither appear on the drop-down menu.

To generate the openstudio results.html I followed this answer and it worked.

Now the remaining problems are that on windows 10: 1) Can't acces energyplus report and openstudio report from the "Results Summary" tab despite the html files are generated. 2) Can't open de Dview report with the Dview button. 3) Can't open the eplusout.sql file directly from the Dview app. The answer is the error message copied above.

Am I the only one with these problems on windows 10?

I just encounter exactly the same problem. Have you solved this?

@Joan are you sure that the simulation finished? You should always be able to access the EnergyPlus Results in OpenStudio without using a measure if the simulation finished successfully.

I’m having the same problem. When I go to the Results Summary after finishing the simulation I just find a blank page with a sad icon. I tried it with openstudio 2.9.0 and recently updated it to 2.9.1 version to see if it was a bug and it was fixed, but it is still there. Also whem I click to the Dview button I get a warning window saying that it failed while trying to reas the eplusout file.
