Can different OpenFOAM versions share the same ParaView?
There are two versions OpenFOAM in my computer, OpenFOAM-2.1.1 and OpenFOAM2.2. When I turn on OpenFOAM-2.1.1 version, I can use ParaView(ParaFoam) to do post-processing. While I switch to OpenFOAM-2.2, I can not use ParaFoam, and it says
'FATAL ERROR: ParaView reader module libraries do not exist
Please build the reader module before continuing:
I can not see the ParaView folder under openfoam-2.2/ThirdParty/, but there is in openfoam-2.1/ThirdParty.
So my question is How can I use shared paraView for both versions?
The easiest way in my opinion is to not use paraFoam, but use paraview with the native reader instead. All you have to do is create an empty *.foam file in the case directory, and you will be able to open it with paraview.
Greetings to all!

In addition, it is possible to use the same custom build version for both installations, if you follow these steps (note: I haven't tested them yet):
Dear Anton and Bruno,
Many thanks for your help. Now I can use Paraview in OpenFOAM 2.2.0.
