Try foamToEnsight -latestTime (or any other time step except 0)

Actually In 0 directory, In the k dictionary the value for K is provided using a wall function, so foamToEnsight is finding difficulty in converting it.

I have convertes to VTK without any problem

Thanks for your help. You are right. For the other timesteps there are
values provided in the k dictionary.
Maybe there should be at least one zero (because of the initial conditions).

Thank's twice .
