Hello, When I click on EP launch from the Windows (64 bit) Start menu, I get the spinning blue circle for a couple of seconds and then nothing happens. The same thing happens when I try to open the .exe file directly from the program folder.

I had my colleague install the program as well, and he is getting the same issue.

Any ideas what might be going on?

Do you have 63 files (mostly .dll and .pyd) in the directly with EP_Launch.exe? Do you have a subdirectly called eplaunch under that that contains .py files and has directories under it that contain other .py files and other files?

Hi Jason, This is what I have in the program folder, see image link. I don't see a subfolder called EPlaunch.

Sorry, you are talking about EP Launch that comes with EnergyPlus 9.4.0, I was thinking you were talking about a newer version that is cross platform.

Have you used EP-Launch in the past successfully with an earlier version of EnergyPlus?
