Default Paraview can't find mesh

I've been looking at using Helyx OS for the first time today, but keep running into a problem quite early on.

I've generated a bounding box, imported an STL to sit inside it, and generated a mesh. The mesh check comes back as OK. At this point I'd ideally like to view the mesh to have a look at the boundary, so I save and move to the Solver tab and open ParaView.

At this point I get the following error:

ERROR: In /home/ubuntu/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-7/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVReaders/PVFoamReader/vtkPVFoamReader.cxx, line 202
vtkPVFoamReader (0x557b30e089a0): could not find valid OpenFOAM mesh

ERROR: In /home/ubuntu/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-dev/ParaView-5.6.0/VTK/Common/ExecutionModel/vtkExecutive.cxx, line 779
vtkPVCompositeDataPipeline (0x557b36171520): Algorithm vtkPVFoamReader(0x557b30e089a0) returned failure for request: vtkInformation (0x557b342d3010)
Debug: Off
Modified Time: 221672
Reference Count: 1
Registered Events: (none)

Any help is much appreciated, I'm possibly missing something pretty simple due to inexperience

If it helps, I'm using Helyx OS 2.4.0 with OpenFOAM 7
