Hi again,
This time I'm not so sure but if you are running gmshToFoam from FoamX the safest way to specify the .msh file is to use the full path, for example
(or something like that).

If you're running from the command line check if the modello.msh file is surely in the current directory.

Maybe you should post the msh file.

I had the same problem, you have to copy and save all relevant folders of the constant folder. After it you have to remove the constant folder. The *.msh file should be in the same folder like 0 and system folder. Then you can execute gmshToFoam command. Then a new constant folder blows up and you have to paste all relevant files into the new constant folder.
