I have tried running the sampling script of ResStock on my computer. However, I am getting the following error:

I have openstudio 3.5.1 and 3.6.0 both installed on my computer and getting the env variable to either of those does not resolve this issue. I also tried to "gem install openstudio" but it raised other errors. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Does it work if you run the sampling script using the OpenStudio CLI instead of ruby? E.g.:

openstudio resources/run_sampling.rb -p project_national -n 200 -o buildstock.csv

(If the openstudio binary is not in your PATH, use /path/to/openstudio ....)

Thank you @shorowit! It did work with this approach (Thank you!). A follow up question on how to do this with openstudio docker images? Right now, I am using

sudo docker run -it --rm -v "$(pwd)":/data nrel/openstudio:3.6.0 /bin/bash -c "cd /data && ruby resources/run_sampling.rb -p project_national -n 200 -o buildstock.csv"

but still getting the same error as before that no such a file or directory exists!

Replace "ruby" with "openstudio" in your docker command?
