I am running CLI. I have been writing the code in Windows to test smaller runs, then moving to larger simulations on Linux/ubuntu via amazon ec2 instances. I do NOT get fatal errors when running the same models and weather files on Windows as I do on Linux.

This is the error I get on Linux:

**  Fatal  ** Program halted because of convergence error in SolveForWindowTemperatures for window NAME

Only happens for about 5% of models, and it's the same error every time... so I am wondering what the root of this error could possibly be.

@kgovie what simulation tool are you using? Please mention it in the title or body of your post, as well as add a tag so that others can provide better help.

I am using the NREL EULP dataset which uses OpenStudio 3.2.1

Hi! I'm having the same issue. In my case I only use Windows. When I run the simulation with EPLaunch or only one simulation with Python API there are no errors, but with recurrent simulations this error apears. Is there anything new about this? Thanks!

What version of EnergyPlus are you using? Can you link to a specific IDF where you get this error?

I'm using version 23.1.0. My IDF file is in this link.
