AWS green start button not working in PAT run interface

Hi all,

Context: I am trying to run a simulation using PAT/OpenStudio v2.9.0 and ResStock v2.2.4. I have inputed my own weather file into Worker initialization Script field using a dropbox direct download link, I have manually set the seed value in the ruby file run_sampling, and I have manually edited location, location-region, and vintage TSV files to reflect a location specific to the project. AMY = 1 in location weather year TSV, and I manually changed output control reporting tolerances in EmptySeedModel.osm model file to 0.5555555556 K.

The problem is that when I go to the Run Tab, select run on cloud, and press the green start button next to Cluster Status icon, the dialogue, "Starting Cloud Cluster, this may take up to 10 minutes" appears. I proceed to wait 10 minutes, and the dialogue disappears, with still no option to start the analysis that typically appears in the bottom left corner. Essentially, AWS WILL NOT START.

I solved this issue by using Task Manager to force exit PAT (I saved project first), and AWS EC 2 to terminate my instance.
