My path for the osm is set correctly but when I am running the simulation i am getting this error.

Found error in state 'initialization' with message ["Failed to load OSM file C:/Users/rwadhwa/OneDrive /Documents/PAT/2_BR/temp_data/analysis_31929370-1acd-4b9a-8c73-5b09a1ccdbbd/seeds/2-BR_EnergyModel1.osm::/ruby/2.5.0/gems/openstudio-workflow-2.0.0/lib/openstudio/workflow/util/model.rb:67:in `load_osm'

Path has the right osm file but still unable to load what could be the issue?

Is it possible your seed OSM is newer than the version of PAT you are using. If you are running on cloud version of OpenStudio Server you need to make sure that matches the version of PAT.

What happens when you try to open that same OSM file in the OpenStudio Application (same version of OpenStudio as PAT)?

@david The OS model is 3.1.0 but I can open it on the latest version of OS 3.2.0. Currently, I am running it in manual mode. I can open the OS model in 3.2.0 and simulate it without any error.

looks like there is a space character in the path name? try removing that.

Are you mentioning about the space after onedrive? Becasue that's the name of the company which I deleted intentionally in actual there is no space after one drive.

hmm, in that case the file path might be too long. can you try with a shorter path, like move the model to C:/Users/rwadhwa/temp or the like?

Brian, it worked i believe this was the same issue relating to 256 character length limit.
