Hi there.

I have been attempting to run just a basic test (20 files) of ResStock (v2.2.1). I have followed along with the documentation in trying to get it to run with PAT on AWS. I successfully can get the server script to start up but I keep getting the same error resulting in all my models to fail.

Here is the error log on one models around the first utterance of an error. image description

It seems as though it is not locating the buildstock.csv, however based on my reading this should trigger a ruby script to generate it? So not sure if it is a bigger problem with the environment not being able to run that? Any ideas are appreciated.

I am currently looking at researching controls in residential (single family) buildings and have been having difficulty in obtaining adequate models of enough variety in system types, location, envelope, etc. I was hoping to use the PNNL Residential Prototype Building Models however conversion of them from V5 to V8.9 or higher has been disastrous, first the geometries would not properly convert to closed volumes and now I have been unable to get the conversion applications to run on either Windows (through parallels) or OSX. It seems as though over 2019 people were having similar issues in converting and would be curious if anyone has successfully converting them recently?

ResStock local idf file generation? I have been interested in using ResStock as a potential alternative to the old PNNL

As a follow up. Have you had any success migrating those past models from their energy plus V5 to something more recent?
