i am trying to creating an FMU using the EnergyPlusToFMU package. I have done that in the past successfully. This is the error I am getting at the moment.C:\fakepath\Capture.PNG

As you can see, instead of using "\" in the command line, we are using the symbol "¥". We are using a Japanese computer with Japanese language. Do you think is this the problem? I successfully created an FMU on my laptop with the same EnergyPlusToFMU version (version 3.0.0) but using English language

Looking at the error message, I think that the problem is coming from the EnergyPlusToFMU and the Python versions you are using.

EnergyPlusToFMU version 3.0 doesn't support Python 3.x. You should therefore use the latest version of EnergyPlusToFMU (3.1.0) if you want to use Python 3.x to create the FMU.

Thank you for your reply. I will use either EnergyPlusToFMU (3.1.0) and Python 3.x or EnergyPlusToFMU (3.0.0) and Python 2.7
