I loaded a DOE baseline model in OpenStudio. It runs OK. But when I tried to modify the setpoints in Schedules Tab, changed some of the temperature setpoints, it turns out failed like shown in the figure. I think it might because the setpoints I defined do not meet the restrictions by OpenStudio or something. But I don't know where can I find the error information to check the causes. Any ideas?

Any replay will be appreciated!

Open studio generates a folder with the same name as your osm file. In that folder, open sub folder called 'Run'. In the Run folder there is an error file called eplusout.err. This is the error file.The file can be opened with Notepad. Scroll to the bottom to see what caused the run to fail.
