i'm using a special commercial Foam Version for serveral years, especially
simplePorousFoam and buoyantSimpleFoam.
In the future we want to switch to the official openFoam.
Is there meanwhile an application, that creates the Folder "0" with the necessary files "U" "T" "p" and so on, based on the boundaries in the polyMesh (for example every boundary is a wall).
Or do you still have to create "U" "T" "P" by hand and then using changeDictionary?
Best Regards and thanks!

I ran into the same problem initially, and found out that you have to do a couple of things you have to do and watch out for. The transition will likely cause you grief:
Update: To create a Zero(0) folder, I have used an open source pre-processing tool called Helyx-OS. You might want to try it, it is available in SourceForge. Use the serial mode (as in single CPU) to get the zero directory at the case folder.

Greetings to all!
I haven't studied OpenFOAM 2.2 closely (yet), so I don't know if they've added anything new for setting up new cases.
But I do remember reading something about PyFoam being able to do this... a quick search lead me to this presentation: http://www.tfd.chalmers.se/~hani/kur...011/pyFoam.pdf
