Hmmm.  I better read the license agreement again.  As far as I know, you 
should be able to use any of the flat files to your purposes.  This would 
include the RunEPlus batch file, the EPL-Run batch file that EP-Launch 
uses, change the EPW files to suit your needs (i.e. look at the effects of 
say +2 deg in dry bulb with same other conditions), etc.

Where you "might" run into trouble would be to give these to someone else 
to use.  But again, if you share them on this forum, (and as you say "at 
your own risk"), I don't think that should be perceived as any kind of 
violation of the license agreement.

Yes, does look like it would work.  Note, however, that RunEP is the result 
of EP-Launch using the selected items and "crossed" with EPL-Run.

What might equally work would be another batch file that contains "calls" 
to the RunEPlus batch file.

call runeplus C:\EnergyPlus111\BatchRun\001 
call runeplus C:\EnergyPlus111\BatchRun\002 
call runeplus C:\EnergyPlus111\BatchRun\003 

You would need to modify runeplus.bat file appropriately so that it can 
accept full paths as the arguments -- as distributed it sets up to use 
inputs from ExampleFiles and the Weatherdata as the WeatherData folder 
under the root where EnergyPlus is installed.

Good luck.
