Hi everyone,

I am having trouble running icoFsiFoam. I get the following error shown while running it in the fluid directory:

Cannot find file "points" in directory "constant/solid/polyMesh"

From function Time::findInstance(const fileName&, const word&, const IOobject::readOption)
in file db/Time/findInstance.C at line 148.

FOAM exiting

I have ran blockMesh in both, the solid and the fluid directory. Also ran checkMesh on both resulting in "mesh ok". I have also checked that the points file is in the solid directory as well as in the fluid...
I have not been able to find related information, im kind of lost here... any ideas?
Thanks a lot in advance for your reply,
