hi all,
I have a problem with the new version of openfoam for windows (version 16.02) released by CFD support.

The problem occurs when I try to launch paraview with the command "paraview" or with the "paraFoam" command an error occurs :
 "ERROR: In C:\msys\1.0\opt\ParaView-v5.0.0-RC1-source\ParaViewCore\ClientServerCore\Rendering\vtkPVSynchronizedRenderWindows.cxx, line 408 vtkPVSynchronizedRenderWindows (0x8b36760): Invalid process type. Segmentation fault
this is the error in paraview:

I tried to find something on internet but it didn't find anything. I also tried to install again paraview but the problem stays. I never had this problem with the last version of Openfoam windows by CFD support (version 15.06).

The installation went well, except with parallel MPI, that already was installed in my computer (maybe the problem is here, but I don't think so).
I'm using windows 10, 64 bits.

Does someone have had the same problem when installing this new version ?

Thank you in advance for your help
