I'm new to EnergyPlus and Openstudio and I'm using OpenStudio Application 1.0.0 for a very simple building model simulation.

When the simulation completed, I set the path to Dview, but after that I can't open Dview to visualize the eplusout.sql file, nothing happens after clicking that button. I also tried to load the .sql file directly from Dview, it just crashed and exited.

I know little about programming so I'm only able to use the the OpenStudio Applicaiton Interface. Could someone help me with the problem?
