I am running ADD Remove Or Replace Window Overhangs to create overhangs for the windows but the measures fail when I run it in the PAT application but runs successfully with the open studio app.

That's weird. Normally I would think that any measure that ran successfully in OS app would also be successful in PAT. Take a look at the measure.rb file for the measure AddRemoveOrReplaceWindowOverhangs and see if it modifies/enters a depth or projection factor.

It is possible that your PAT workflow is changing the model such that it is removing the depth or projection factor.

Compare the inputs that the OS app and PAT are providing to the measure, I think you will find them to have different behavior as to how they default input values. I would specifically check that PAT isn't setting 0 for optional inputs where the OS app is leaving them blank. If you ensure that the PAT inputs perfectly match the OS app, you will get the same result.

@shorowit So I can do that by comparing the .osw files that are generated after running the simulationright?

Yes, that should work.
