The Simulate Building Performance process aborts and sends the following message: "Error: 4 standard file writing errors encountered." How do I identify these Errors?

As far as I know, these are logical errors often caused by having thermal zones with no systems or no thermal zones at all. Generally, the errors can be found in the .sim file by looking through the "ATTN Simulation Messages For Review" section.

Alternatively, you can go to Tools > Check Building Description or you can search the .BDL file for the word "error" after you open it with a regular text editor.
