Hopefully this isn't a Noddy question, but I'm lost where to start looking. I am trying to run the icoDyMFoam tutorial cases on Brook's Cygwin port, but get the following:


$ icoDyMFoam . mixer2D

Exec : icoDyMFoam . mixer2D

Selecting dynamicFvMesh mixerFvMesh


--> FOAM FATAL ERROR : could not load No such file or directory

From function dynamicFvMesh::New(const IOobject&)
in file dynamicFvMesh/newDynamicFvMesh.C at line 78.

FOAM exiting


Can anyone give me some pointers as to what's failing? Thanks in advance.

Okay - turns out there is a small boo-boo in the tutorial file. In the dynamicMeshDict, the file extension of the library dynamicFvMeshLib needs to be renamed from .so to .dll, to match the world of Windows. After that, all seems well!
