[Equest-users] Baseline model failure - corrupted pd2 file?

Have you tried creating a fresh project/pd2 file by opening the inp file
from eQUEST Detailed Interface (File -> Open -> in lower R corner change
file type to .inp)? You will loose all the Wizard information contained
in your pd2 file, and have to redefine a weather file and file path for
project, but this would help determine if the .pd2 file is corrupted. I
can't racall if I have ever had a pd2 file become corrupt, but this
would be one way to determine if it is indeed an issue with the pd2 file.
