Hi Dan,

I have the same error and noticed that it occurs in eQuest refrigeration 3.65 version. My model works fine without this error in 3.61 refrigeration version.

What happened is after opening eQuest for the first time, any change could be made. But after the first simulation, any attempt to change the inputs causes the error.

Have anyone had the same problem? Any suggestion to fix it?

Thanks,

Huy Tran

I have not had this error.

Have you tried 3.64? 3.65 seems to have a lot of these issues. One guess is that the file is either corrupted or still opened in the background. 
You could try exiting out of equest, then open equest (with the desktop shortcut), then open the pd2 file through the file-->open menu (instead of double clicking on it). Sometimes opening the file this way seems to rectify odd errors.
