Why can't i get the HVAC sizing results in the OpenStudioResults measure? They are in energy plus fine. See photos. It also reports "hard-sized" but everything is set to "autosize"

What version of openstudio are you using? It's possibly related to this issue https://github.com/NREL/EnergyPlus/is..., default field change in EnergyPlus, which created some issues in OpenStudio API were it would not run plant sizing if the default settings were used.

I didn't see this comment until now, I am using OpenStudio Application version 1.0

I read the post, it is a lot of computer programmer stuff. I'm trying to engineer HVAC systems, and I am not a computer programmer and don't want to be. Can someone fix this so i can use OS for what it was designed for?

There was a change in plant loops in EnergyPlus that omitted plant sizing under certain selections - make sure you run plant sizing in your model. There was also an update to the results reporting measure which I believe should have fixed this issue. Make sure you have the most recent version of the measure download from BCL. This isn't tied to the version of the openstudio application.
