preibie is on a distinguished road

I want to read a decomposed case with paraview. But in the new version 3.10.1 I doesn't have the choice to read a decomposed or reconstructed file.

Have somebody an Idea

Greetings Stefan,

If you are running ParaView with OpenFOAM 2.0.0/1/x, then run it like this:
paraFoam -builtin
This will make it use the internal reader for OpenFOAM cases, which allows you to open a decomposed case without the need for MPI.
Nonetheless, the internal reader in ParaView 3.10.1 sometimes fails to open certain cases/results that were executed with OpenFOAM 2.0.

If these fail, then the next step would be to run:
for the decomposed case to be reconstructed.

If you still want to try and open the case with ParaView in parallel mode, see your other thread: - I'll answer you there shortly!

Best regards,
