Hello people,
I think I have a compiler problem when I'm running the tutorials cavity in pisoFoam (ras) and cavityClipped in icoFoam. For example when I use "$ mapFields ../cavity" command in the latter, I get-
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Cannot find file "points" in directory "polyMesh" in times 0.5 down to constant

From function Time::findInstance(const fileName&, const word&, const IOobject::readOption)
in file db/Time/findInstance.C at line 175.

FOAM exiting
My versions of OpenFOAM and Paraview are 1.7.1 & 3.8.1 respectively. What should I do?

did you use the blockMesh command to create geometry?

Thanks, yeah, I had. Apparently it hadn't worked due to some reason. I quit the terminal and repeated the "$blockMesh" command. Then, I encountered no glitches. So basically, if OpenFOAM has been installed properly, there shouldn't be any C++ compiler problems while running it, right?
P.S.- This post is quite silly now, I should probably remove it.

Above error said that points has not been found so it mightbe not created yet! so probable mistake could be that you forget to use blockMesh command

besides if you in doubt that the openFOAM has been installed properly or not
go to bin directory and use
./foamInstallationTest
and check configuration
