[Equest-users] Invalid Argument for parametric runs

I've seen other reports of the same error message.  One of the suggestions I've seen is to go to your Program Files folder, right click the eQUEST.exe file, select properties, then compatibility, and then select Windows XP with the highest numbered service pack available.

I get the message at times.  It generally happens when I'm exiting wizard mode from making inputs.  It appears that the inputs do get written to file, though.  When I get the error message, at the top left of the screen I can see that my project is no longer displayed.  I have to exit eQUEST and re-launch the program, and select the project I was working on.  When I open the project, it generally seems that the input changes I made did get saved before the error message came up.

I'm not sure changing the compatibility mode will always fix the problem, however, it appears to be more of an irritant as your changes don't seem to get lost.

My best.

Subject: [Equest-users] Invalid Argument for parametric runs


I'm trying to create a parametric run to convert my PTAC system to a PSZ system and every time a get Invalid Argument message.  The only thing that I am doing in the run is changing system type to PSZ and defining the Control Zone.  Has anyone else had this issue or does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?
