1. The simulation has failed because of this fatal error: ** Fatal ** Errors occurred on processing input file. Preceding condition(s) cause termination

I have Honeybee 0.65 , openstudio 3.0.01 and E+ 9.3…

Everytime I run E+ or Openstudio simulations I get errors.

for E+ Compononent I get

  1. The simulation has not run correctly because of this severe error:
    ** Severe ** [ShadowCalculation][ShadowCalculation 1][shading_calculation_method] - “AverageOverDaysInFrequency” - Failed to match against any enum values.

  2. The simulation has not run correctly because of this severe error:
    ** Severe ** [ShadowCalculation][ShadowCalculation 1][shading_calculation_update_frequency_method] - “30” - Failed to match against any enum values.

  3. The simulation has failed because of this fatal error:
    ** Fatal ** Errors occurred on processing input file. Preceding condition(s) cause termination.

For OS Component
[Error: 1. Solution exception:The type initializer for ‘OpenStudio.OpenStudioModelCorePINVOKE’ threw an exception]

I tried to downgrade my E+ to 8 versions still no luck, did anyone face similar issues?

A

I have faced the same issue, is there anyone can help

The latest version of Legacy Honeybee is 0.0.66. So you should use that unless you want to go back to OpenStudio 2.5.

Also, I would recommend using OpenStudio 2.9.1 for Legacy Honeybee 0.0.66 and not OpenStudio 3.0.

Hello, it is my first simulation try following a tutorial video and when I run the energy plus simulation I get an error:

  1. The simulation has not run correctly because of this severe error:
    ** Severe ** [ShadowCalculation][ShadowCalculation 1][shading_calculation_method] - “AverageOverDaysInFrequency” - Failed to match against any enum values.
  2. The simulation has not run correctly because of this severe error:
    ** Severe ** [ShadowCalculation][ShadowCalculation 1][shading_calculation_update_frequency_method] - “30” - Failed to match against any enum values.
  3. The simulation has failed because of this fatal error:
    ** Fatal ** Errors occurred on processing input file. Preceding condition(s) cause termination.

what should I do please?

Use a compatible version of OpenStudio, @souel
