Installation

Install OpenStudio and PAT

Download the latest stable software version of OpenStudio (2.8.1) from the OpenStudio developer website. This is necessary because the latest critical changes to run ResStock projects are only available in the latest version. Do a default install including Parametric Analysis Tool (PAT).

Open the Parametric Analysis Tool (PAT). You may be asked if you would like to allow openstudio to allow connections. Select “Allow”.
