Hello, i am a very beginner user of openstudio, and in all of my projects the follow error occurs :

** Severe  ** <root>[Site:Location] - Object contains properties that could not be validated using 'properties' or 'additionalProperties' constraints
** Severe  ** <root>[Site:Location] - Object name is required and cannot be blank or whitespace

How I can resolve these ? I tried something in materials but I don't understand too much.

Thanks guys

Make sure you have set a Weather File on the "Site" tab, this is what's going to set the "Site:Location" object in E+, which as the message says is currently blank.

Click on "Set Weather File":
