I've searched High and Low for the reason that I can't get the basic baseline to run in PAT and so far have not found any answers. The question I have is also posted here without any answer because the user answered their own question even though it wasn't an answer just a clarification.

I want to just get my baseline model run and then add my alternatives, but I can't get the baseline to simulate. I get the server running and the analysis says it completed but there is no run time and the status is stuck at "queued". My seed file simulates in OpenStudio without issue and I ensured that in PAT I was pulling the OpenStudio Results measure from BCL rather than having a duplicate in My Measures directory.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

what version of PAT? what Operating system and version are you using? does the server start with the server tools drop down?

I'm not sure of the version of PAT. It is in the same folder as OpenStudio which is 2.9.1. The server is running after a few minute startup and it is as "run locally". Hope these clarifications help!

try getting rid of the "&" in the directory name.

also the path on your S drive looks very long and has special characters in it. try something smaller/simpler. also try moving it to your C drive. Is the S drive a network drive?

Brian, Thank you so much. It is quite silly that the file path ends up being the thing that causes all this to get stuck in limbo. But your suggestion of moving to C drive worked. Can you please repost as an answer so I can accept and others can see this resolution?

try moving your project to your C drive, where your PAT install is.
