OpenStudio 2.9 Compatablilty

I tried to install Openstudio 2.9 with the accompanied with energyplus version 9-2-0. Installation went well only Honeybee got some problems with it.
I checked the energyplus file in the openstudio folder and it seems to be version 9-2-0

Honeybee although thinks it is still V9-0-0

But more important the simulation is not running properly.

And Openstudio gives the following message:


@MinboPeng suggested in this post Ground sourced central heatpump that it should work.

Hi @Erikbeeren,

Honeybee is using the EnergyPlus under OpenStudio installation folder, and it shows “>” (larger than) “9.0”, which is true in your case, because the EP version is 9.2. You don’t have to worry about this energyPlus version, but just need to make sure openstudio’s version is correct.

I am not sure what is causing running simulation issue based on what you have provided here.
It has successfully saved osm file, but not be able to translate to idf.

Here are my suggestions:

  1. Use OpenStudio App to open the osm file, to see if you could run the model there.
  2. Check if your HB version is outdated. The most recent update is on 10/24.
  3. Double click the component, and navigate to line 4957 to locate the problem. @chris might have seen this issue.

The last problem is because your default application to open osm file is OpenStudio 2.8 on your computer. You can either switch default application to 2.9 or uninstall the 2.8.

I have an older version.

Updating Honeybee using the Honeybee_Update component however gave an error. Maybe something for @chris

@Erikbeeren ,

For your latest question, the update component has, itself, been updated. You have to get the new one from @mostapha 's post:

I will to do some testing with OpenStudio 2.9 when I get the chance.
