I am evaluating design alternatives with PAT. I tried to run locally ( Run Locally option). It shows the server error. Screenshots are attached.

Hey, Dipen609!

I had experienced some of your worries while back, and I came up with some conclusions about this specific issue.

1) Are you running the simulation on root directory (c:/ or d:/) or in a server or external drive? You should run locally, which means run in the root directory as well. In fact, you should install all the tools (SketchUp, OpenStudio, PAT, EnergyPlus, Ruby) in the same directory to avoid any troubles in the future. Might be the first action to take;

2) Check if the folder contains the .json files that are tipically required to run the server on PAT. More discussed here:

3) Also, the PAT server takes time to be fully setup, so you should await to all Ruby Interpreters take place on your process schedule, as we can see here: The number of interpreters deployed will vary accordingly with the amount of cores offered by your CPU.

See if it's "serves" you well. :D
