Hi, would anyone have any advice on how to import Window Components that have been downloaded from the BCL onto openstudios? I've previously downloaded many window configurations from the BCL and used them successfully, but openstudios has since got rid of them, despite the components still downloaded onto my desktop.

Would anyone know how I can re-install these components? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Which version of the OpenStudio Application are you using? When you download a Window Construction from the BCL using the OpenStudio Application (Components & Measures->Find Components) it should show up in the Library tab under Constructions. Constructions from the BCL have a little BCL icon on them. You can drag these into your model. If you download the construction from using a web browser or you have them on your desktop in a file, you can use File->Load Library to load the OSM into your library where you can then drag it into your model.
