Hello everyone

I am new to OpenFOAM. I utilized a tutorial downloaded from


to start off learning it from a simple Couette flow problem. However, even though I don't face any problems in the solver part (ie after running icoFoam), in paraFoam, when I apply the properties to view it, I get the following error

ERROR: In C:\msys\1.0\opt\ParaView-v4.1.0\VTK\IO\Geometry\vtkOpenFOAMReader.cxx, line 6864
vtkOpenFOAMReaderPrivate (0x82f9f90): boundaryField defaultFaces not found in object p at time = 0

I am using OpenFOAM windows version, the latest one as am not much versed with Linux.

Could anyone suggest what maybe wrong with the work I have done? I followed exactly as given in the tutorial, including the codes and all.

Thanks in advance!
