@Umair are you using the OpenStudio Application, or the OpenStudio plug in for SketchUp? I ask because you used the tag for both, even though they are different software tools.

Also, if you can save your model files in Dropbox, Google Drive, or something similar and share the URL to those files here so that others can review that would be helpful.

The ProgramControl object is fairly advanced. Your model has a default value for "Number of Threads Allowed" so the warning can be ignored. If you want to modify the ProgramControl object before simulation you can do that using an EnergyPlus Measure or by editing the exported IDF directly.
