Any screenshots or .gh files to share? What component is throwing the error?

Do you have a non-ASCII character in weather file full path? That’s most likely the source of this error. Also it’s always a better choice to send your Ladybug Tools questions to Ladybug Tools forum: http://discourse.ladybug.tools

thank you very much for your time
unfortunatelly i cant solve the problem
when i choose file path to a working directory to my computer for the epw file,the energyplus component reports that at least one of the mandatory inputs is missing
when i dont choose the file path, the report says the above " 1. Solution exception:‘ascii’ codec can’t encode character ‘\u395’ in position 206 "
i share with you the file10.2.gh (502.4 KB)

You need to change the _workingDir_ to a new path with no Greek character. For instance try c:\ladybug.
