I am encountering a problem with the Reporting Measure in my OpenStudio model.

In order for the simulation to run successfully, I have to delete the existing OpenStudio Reporting measure attached to the model in the Reporting Measures section of the Measures tab. Once the simulation is complete, I save a new iteration of the model for more changes to be made. When I reopen the saved file, I get the error shown below upon running the model. This problem disappears if I immediately delete the measure and add it again, but it will reappear once I reopen the file in the future.

In addition to this being an inconvenience, it also results in each edition of the model having an additional OpenStudio Reporting measure in the Measures file.

First I would restart the computer if yo have not yet. Then before you launch the OpenStudio application throw away any copies of the OpenStudio Results measure from the project’s measure directory. Close any windows explorer windows you have within the directory that sits next to your OSM file. Then launch the OpenStudio application, add OpenStudio Results measure, and try to run it. It seems like issue has come back fro you when you quit and launch it again, so if that is the cause, try that and see if it resolves the issue.

@david-goldwasser thank you for your comment. I still get the same problem. However, deleting the additional measures in the folder is a good idea, it makes it look tidier. I was originally afraid of deleting them, as I thought it could affect the model.

Can you check on the failed run if the EnergyPlus simulation finished and just the reporting measure failed. Can you also look at the out.osw file and see if there is any content indicating the cause of the error.
