Hi,
I have the following problem:
when I want to use paraFoam to view the results from a tutorial case (for example the cavity case of the icoFoam excample, after running blockMesh and icoFoam), the following happens:

paraFoam starts and a message box appears:
"A reader for 'cavity.OpenFOAM could not be found. Please choose one:"

Then there is a list, and I select: "OpenFOAM files".

After that, the program crashes and I get this message in the shell:
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::length_error'
what(): basic_string::_S_create
Aborted


Do you have any ideas?

All openFoam and paraview things are installed.

I tried cavity tutorial.

blockMesh
icoFoam

They worked very well.

parafoam -case $FOAM_RUN/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity

The paraview 3.6.1 is poped out, but how can I open data?
there's no file. (e.g.cavity.foam)
so I made a cavity.foam with no contents. ( just using vi )
Opening that file, paraview just ended up.

Is there anybody to help?

Hello,

did you tried to compile paraview and the PV3-Reader as described in the Readme-File?

7 Compiling Paraview 3.3 and the PV3FoamReader module
A version of Qt 4.3.x must be installed to compile ParaView. The compilation is a fairly simple process
using the supplied buildParaView3.3-cvs script that has worked is our tests with other packages supplied
in the ThirdParty directory, namely cmake-2.4.6 and gcc-4.3.1.

Execute the following:
cd $FOAM_INST_DIR/ThirdParty
rm -rf ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms
buildParaView3.3-cvs
The PV3FoamReader module is an OpenFOAM utility that can be compiled in the usual manner as
follows:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3FoamReader
./Allwclean
./Allwmake

After I had done this, paraview worked at me.
