algorithmic modeling for Rhino


I am having a problem with the earth tube honeybee component. when I connect the HBZone the component shows an error that says:


1. Solution exception:No se puede encontrar una parte de la ruta de acceso 'C:\Program Files\OpenStudio 1.12.0\share\openstudio\EnergyPlus-8-5-0PreProcess\CalcSoilSurfTemp\exeinputs.txt'.

"A part of the access route can`t be found"

Could somebody please help me. I`ve tried in other computer and the same thing happens. Am I doing something wrong? or is there a problem with the component?.

Would you know of another way to model an earth tube?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Luis,

Please try the file attached, somehow it looks like a / got left out of the filepath.

Let me know how it goes.


Hello Anton,

I tryied the file you kindly send me. But now it shows a similar error in a diferent path as shown in the picture.

Thank you again.



I don´t know if this helps.


Based on the error I think it's happening because Honeybee finds the EnergyPlus folder under OpenStudio installation on your machine which is a stripped down version of EnergyPlus installation and doesn't have the files that Anton is using for modeling earth-tube.

Hello Mostapha. Thanks for the response. I am sorry but I am not very savvy in this topic. Should I reinstall OpenStudio?. Or what should I do?


I think I'll need to take a closer look at this one can you add me on skype its just my name I'll call you and have a look at whats going on, on your computer

Thank you very much Anton,

I am available at your earliest convenience.


I've the same problem !

"1. Solution exception:Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Program Files\OpenStudio 1.14.0\share\openstudio\EnergyPlus-8-6-0PreProcess\CalcSoilSurfTemp\exeinputs.txt'."

Have you found what cause the problem?

Thank you,


Hi Mohammed.

I fixed this recently so you are using an outdated version, until my latest pull request gets merged find a working copy attached here. It will work with the Export to OpenStudio component and Run E+ component


Thank you Anton,

I tried the new file and still have a problem 

"1. Solution exception:Could not find file 'C:\Program Files\OpenStudio 1.14.0\share\openstudio\EnergyPlus-8-6 0\PreProcess\CalcSoilSurfTemp\CalcSoilSurfTemp.out'."
