Hi, I have downloaded OpenStudiov3.3.0 and OpenStudioApplication v1.2.0. However when I try to open a .osm file it tells me that the application program is only v3.2.0 and that I need to update it?

Any suggestions?

Captain obvious here! You should upgrade to OpenStudioApplication 1.3.1 (which is a bug fix for 1.3.0) so that it supports OS SDK 3.3.0:

Generally speaking, you should refer to the OpenStudio Application Version Compatibility Matrix to check which OSApp versions corresponds to which OS SDK / E+ Version

Thanks, I couldn't find that matrix, which is super helpful, and I'm on a work computer so have to try convince the IT department on what I can install.

Please note that the Windows installers for the OpenStudioApplication are now digitally signed since the 1.3.0 release (as the release notes indicates, but easy to miss), so it should not trigger any Windows Defender / Smart Screen warnings anymore.
