foamToVTK & foamDataToFluent problem!

I try to convert my results (fireFoam tutorial im OpenFOAM 1.7) to VTK or .data but I get:


Cannot find 'value' entry on patch base of field IDefault in file "/model/villami/OpenFOAM/villami-1.7.0/run/tutorials/combustion/fireFoam/les/smallPoolFire2D/0/IDefault"
which is required to set the values of the generic patch field.
(Actual type greyDiffusiveRadiation)

Please add the 'value' entry to the write function of the user-defined boundary-condition
or link the boundary-condition into

file: /model/villami/OpenFOAM/villami-1.7.0/run/tutorials/combustion/fireFoam/les/smallPoolFire2D/0/IDefault::boundaryField::.* from line 25 to line 28.

From function genericFvPatchField<Type>::genericFvPatchField(con st fvPatch&, const Field<Type>&, const dictionary&)
in file genericFvPatchField/genericFvPatchField.C at line 71.

FOAM exiting

Whats up here???
Thanks in advance for your help :-)

IDefault (greyDiffusiveRadiation)
There was a misspelling on the IDefault entry in the zero folder (semi colon missing). The change has been updated into 1.7.x
