@TheEnergyTutor I just updated the BCL copy of the report from our GitHub repository. If you still see this issue with that copy can you share the model. When you launch the OpenStudio Application it should update your locally copy but if it doest this post describes deleting your BCL directory or using the GitHub repository.

So it did not update automatically so I went components and measures and updated the measure manually. This did not work. I tried re-synchronize on the run dialog screen. Then i read the linked post and renamed c:/users/user/BLC to BLC_OLD. Then tried again. This did not work. Then it says I need a BCL_KEY because mine is invalid which i don't know so it sends me to a dead link :

I'm stuck.

@TheEnergyTutor, if you go to and login and go to My Dashboard you should see your key on the left after API v1.1 key: Also if you want to share your model I can test it.

I tried to log in but don't know my password and tried to recover password, but it did not send an email. So I created a new account and it also did not send an email. I think there is something wrong with that website.

Ok after getting a new account and downloading the measure, it works now
