Dragonfly_windows error with open dss example

Hi @chris. Today I updated to urbanopt version (also updaed the lbt to dev version) 0.5.1 and tried to run open dss example file. It threw a windows error as shown below.

@Asisnath ,

Are you sure that you ran the LB Versioner and you have the latest version of the core libraries installed? I am able to run the file without issues using URBANopt 0.5.1. Maybe you should also try making sure that the folder into which you are writing the geoJSON is clean (delete the folder before running the component).

FYI, this is not related to your error but I have not posted the installation instructions for the OpenDSS workflows yet (they are little bit WIP right now but they will still work). In any case, you won’t be able to use the OpenDSS component unless you install OpenDSS.

To install OpenDSS right now, you need to do the following:

  1. Install Python 3.7.9 by downloading the exe from python.org and running it.
  2. Open a terminal and type the following command:
pip install urbanopt-ditto-reader -U
