Hello. I am modelling a house and the OS simulation results do not produce "Zone Conditions" and "Zone Overview" outputs. Here is the error message that I got. I looked at the detailed measure warnings too but they did not help much. image description

Does anyone know why this might be happening? I assigned gas furnace and whole house fan as HVAC equipment in the thermal zones. Here is a screenshot of the Thermal Zones tab. image description

Thank you!

It looks like the name of your thermal zone "Kid's Bedroom" is tripping up the code. Try renaming it to "Kids Bedroom" (i.e., without the apostrophe) instead. You might also rename "Bathroom#1" and "Bathroom#2" to "Bathroom1" and "Bathroom2" to be safe.

@bchoi It also looks like this bug may have been fixed for v1.1 of the OpenStudio application, are you using an older version?

@shorowit Thank you, it worked! And I'm using v1.1.
