How do I use ResStock?

I have been trying to understand the capabilities of ResStock, however, I have an issue with understanding how to run it. I am currently using OpenStudio v2.9.0 to try and run ResStock, but I keep getting a large error message.

I was wondering if anyone could run me through the process of installing and using ResStock! I read that ResStock needs buildstockbatch v0.18 and EnergyPlus v9.2, so could that be the reason why ResStock isn't working for me?

I have been using ResStock v2.2.4 for the past year! I can't help you with any of the newer versions of ResStock that don't use the ParametricAnalysisTool (PAT); everything after v2.2.5 I don't have experience with. You should download v2.2.5, since that has a few minor differences from v2.2.4 but still follows the same framework. I use OS v2.9.0 as well! I can help you install it, maybe we can set up a video call.

Great! Thanks for responding! I think a video call would be great. How can I contact you?
