OS 1.8.0 crashes over incomplete setpoint manager specification

asked 2015-07-30 04:16:38 -0600

updated 2015-07-30 06:23:59 -0600

After defining a scheduled setpoint manager in a plant loop with type of control variable unspecified, the osm file can be saved but not any more re-loaded by OpenStudio: Trying to open the osm file leads to an unhandled exception, as you can see in the attached screen shot.

@OS-user-AT Which version of OpenStudio are you using and how are you defining a SetpointManager:Scheduled with unspecified Control Variable?

@OS-user-AT Is this from an OSM that was updated to 1.8.0 from an older version? And if so, what version was used to originally create the OSM?

The reason for this crash is apparently as follows:

The crash occurrs when opening a version 1.4.0 osm-file with OpenStudio 1.8.0. While in version 1.4.0 a void field for Control Variable can be selected in the edit tab for the setpoint manager, this is no longer possible with version 1.8.0.

OpenStudio 1.8.0 not expecting an undefined setting for Control Variable now is caught with an unhandled exception.

@OS-user-AT This is exactly where my line of questions was leading. I have created a new issue on GitHub for this crash.
