Measure and idf run successfully in Openstudio, but not PAT

I am trying to setup 11 building models to simulate in each of 7 climate zones and am having a bit of trouble with the Parametric Analysis Tool. The measure I'm using is an energyplus measure, which deletes everything in the input osm/idf and adds every object in an external idf file. This is so we could use our current idf files without having to translate them into osm files.

The idf runs with ep-launch, and the measure and idf run in Openstudio, but the PAT doesn't run successfully.

The error is "completed Fail" in PAT, but not much else. I looked through the files in the PAT directory and found the following error message at the bottom of this file.

Any idea what could be wrong? My only idea is the external IDF loaded is incompatible with whatever PAT is using to simulate, but I couldn't find a not empty idf file within the PAT directory.
