RunEnergySimulation cannot create the working directory

Hi there,

A small problem: When I add the working directory and idfFileName with GH panels to the RunEnergySimulation, it doesn’t work, as it cannot create the working directory. But if I don’t give these two text inputs, it can work by default values.
Any ideas how I can enable the tool to write custom folder and file names?

Best,

There are two possibilities:

  1. You have pressed Enter after c:\ladybug or test1. If this is the case the fix is easy. Just remove the extra line from the end.

  2. You don’t have writing permissions to c:\ladybug. If that is the case you need to change the write permission for c:\ladybug or just let Ladybug use the default folder. Does it work correctly if you remove the input for working directory and file name?

Thanks @mostapha. I removed the newline characters and it works now.

This is an easy fix for us. I opened an issue to address this for all the components.
