Hey, the error is due to the file "alpha1~", this is the backup-file of the original alpha1-file. Don't know why paraview is looking for that ?

But, do something like this:
  1. write "paraFoam" in the shell
  2. uncheck the volume fields in the object inspector
  3. check only one of your solution variables and may attempt of the given time directory, because maybe the alpha1-file wasn't wrote in the 0-dict (this is the default dict by press apply)
  4. before press apply select the latest time step in the upper toolbar
Hope i can help you, sorry for my poor english

JR22 will become famous soon enough
Another thing you can try is the command line foamToVTK, and then open the generated VTK files from paraview (not paraFoam). If this approach works, then your problem might be in the paraFoam installation, if this approach doesn't work, then your problem is likely in your mesh/solution.

The reason for skipping is because there isn't a alpha1-file in the 0-dict! Or not?? Did you define the alpha1-file in your 0-dict?
