This is really frustrating trying to get Open Studio software downloaded and working

I go to https://openstudiocoalition.org/getti...

Installation Steps Download and install OpenStudio Application

Download the latest release of OpenStudio Application here.

the here link takes me to a page where it is not clear how or which file to download https://github.com/openstudiocoalitio... It is not clear which one I need or how to download it

Can someone give me a clue? Thanks,

That second link is taking you to Github, where the OpenStudio application source code is hosted. This allows you to any version -- including "pre-release" versions that test new features before "release" versions are provided. Pre-release versions have an orange "Pre-release" badge next to them (see below).

If you want to download the latest release version, you can find the one that has a green "Latest release" badge (looks like v1.1.0).

You should also be able to find an installer for the latest version here under the OpenStudio Application Release section. This is where you could also download and install the other tools in the "OpenStudio family" (Software Development Kit, Parametric Analysis Tool, SketchUp Plugin).

The changelog for the 1.1.0 was probably too long and you had to scroll a bit too much to find the assets, so I improved readability a bit by adding a <details>tag. See https://github.com/openstudiocoalitio...
