Hello,i have an IDF ,version 7.1 file but i am using version 9.4 of EnergyPlus. The IDF version Updater cannot convert the file to the 9.4 version. I tried to download the 7.2 version of EP to use the simple transition, convert the 7.1 file to the 7.2 version and then use the IDF version Update of my 9.4 version to, finally, have an updated file.

Note that the IDFversion Updater of the 9.4 version can only update files from 7.2 version and further. This strategy could work but i cant find the 7.2 version of EP for Windows anywhere (I only found that version for linux or mac).

What should I do?

You can get the files you need to do version updates starting earlier than EnergyPlus 7.2.0 here:
