Anton,

Just letting you know that it seems I have an opportunity to apply this in my current job. Very happy that you built this functionality out and are turbo-boosting the support now. I may have some questions about it in the near future.

Hello Anton.

I am having a problem using the earth tube component in honeybee. Once I plug the epw the HBZone and the schedules it shows the error “1. Solution exception:Apart of the access route can´t be found ‘C:\Program Files\OpenStudio 1.12.0\share\openstudio\EnergyPlus-8-5-0PreProcess\CalcSoilSurfTemp\exeinputs.txt’.”.

I don´t know if I should reinstall Energy Plus or what to do. I´m in the process of modeling a library in Morelia Mexico and earth tubes are being proposed.

Thank you in advance.
