Hi all,

I´ve downloaded the new E+ 9.3 (big thanks to the developers for the effort!), but I can´t seem to find the Ep-launch tool. Am I missing something?

Everything else in the installation folder is pretty much as expected, I´m just missing that .exe. Reinstalling did not fix it.

PS I´m aware that E+ is now transitioning towards a library, although I´m not sure of the implications of this transition. Does that imply we will no longer be able to use the EP-Lauch interface?

Thanks, Rafael

Are you using Windows?

Yes, windows 10 and the following installer

EnergyPlus-9.3.0-baff08990c-Windows-x86_64

That is what I used and got EP-Launch. Are other exe files installed like energyplus.exe, EPMacro.exe, ConvertInputFormat.exe, and ExpandObjects.exe?

BTW, based on this, you might want to just copy EP-Launch.exe from an earlier installation anyway.

Ok, now I figured out that Windows antivirus was detecting it as a threat and putting the file in quarantine. Weird.

Once I allowed it through, the .exe returned in place
