Hi CFD-Online-Users,

i have big problems with the installation of OpenFoam. I have read some topics about this but nothing could help me. Because I open a topic for me.

When ever I tried ./Allwmake after installation openfoam211 following this error:

./Allwmake: 4: ./Allwmake: wmakeCheckPwd: not found
Error: Current directory is not $WM_PROJECT_DIR
The environment variables are inconsistent with the installation.
Check the OpenFOAM entries in your dot-files and source them.

I have openfoam installed with using a virtual box on Windows 7.

Have anyone a solution to my problem????

Thanks

You mean this page: http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu.php - correct?

If so, then you don't need to run "Allwmake"! Simply follow the instructions on that page!
Switch to another page only if that page tells you to.

Like I wrote, simply follow the instructions on that page, because those instructions will install an already built version of OpenFOAM, ready to be used!
"Allwmake" is only part of the instructions for building from source.

Super. You saved my day.
I tried to solve this "problem" about a long time :-)

Thank you very much!
