Hi, i'm having trouble with coupling Contam to EnergyPlus. I've been using the step by step guideline in the Contam user guide by NIST. I've created the ContamFMU files, a IDF file from the Contam3Dexport tool and Contam resart file. When i try to run a EnergyPlus simulation with the IDF file from Contam i get this error:

* Severe * ExternalInterface/CalcExternalInterfaceFMUImport: Error when trying to initialize
* ~~~ * instance "ContamFMU" of FMU "ContamFMU.fmu"
* ~~~ * Error Code = "3"
* Fatal * ExternalInterface/StopExternalInterfaceIfError: Error in ExternalInterface: Check EnergyPlus *.err file.

Has anyone had this problem once before? How can i fix this error? I'm currently using EnergyPlus 9.1.0 and Contam 3.2, I've also used Openstudio to edit the geometrie from the Contam IDF file.
