Im new to open studio but got the following error which I can't resolve. The error looks like:

stderr: sh: line 1: 38583 Abort trap: 6           
"/Applications/OpenStudioApplication1.4.0/" 2>&1
EnergyPlus returned a non-zero exit code. Check the stdout-energyplus log.

I have read about an eplus.err file to see the specific error but I don't get this file. For different idf files I get the same error. Also with files that are originally from energyplus to practice with.

Hope anyone can help me with this problem!

On the Run Tab, click the "Verbose Output" checkbox at the top and try to see if you can get more information.

Also, try to see if you can run the E+ executable itself. Open your Terminal and type:

/Applications/OpenStudioApplication1.4.0/EnergyPlus/energyplus --help

Dear Julien,

Thank you for your answer! I tried to click the "Verbose Output" checkbox but I don't seem to get much information from that. When the line in my terminal I got the following:

dyld: Symbol not found: __ZTINSt3__14__fs10filesystem16filesystem_errorE Referenced from: /Applications/OpenStudioApplication-1.4.0/EnergyPlus/libenergyplusapi.22.1.0.dylib (which was built for Mac OS X 10.15) Expected in: /usr/lib/libc++.1.dylib in /Applications/OpenStudioApplication-1.4.0/EnergyPlus/libenergyplusapi.22.1.0.dylib Abort trap: 6

Do you maybe know what I am doing wrong?

E+ doesn't run because your macOS system version is too old to support the std::filesystem from C++17. What version are you using? You need 10.15 or above
