It is documented, open source and supported by LLNL (though I have not checked the latter). It compiled with no problems on my unix system. It is more for structural problems than CFD problems though.

I checked the system a while ago and the plotting of a scalar variable required 4 function calls: create database, put mesh, put variable, close database. I got this from the introduction in the silo reference manual. Meshtv read the file without a problem. Perhaps things get more complicated later?

If you have problems developing code on Windows then install FreeBSD, Solaris or Linux which are all free for PC hardware. Most CFD software will have been developed on unix-like systems.

If you are struggling with open software from LLNL then I would suggest sticking with pre-built executables. The cost of fieldview, tecplot or whatever is likely to be less than the time you lose messing around.
