Hello all:

The same problem happens when I try to type a particular sample OpenFOAM code using OpenFOAN_Start:

cp -r $FOAM_TUTORIALS/incompressible/simpleFoam/pitzDaily .
cd pitzDaily
blockMesh
simpleFoam
parafoam


Please build the reader module before continuing:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3Readers
./Allwclean
./Allwmake

How can I build reader module as shown?

Actually, I have typed the above 3 sentences in OpenFOAM_Start but it still did not work.

Thank you.

Best,
Anthony

Quick questions:
  1. Which Operating System are you using on the real machine? Windows or Mac OS X?
  2. Did you read what's stated here: http://www.openfoam.com/download/install-binary.php - If you look for the work "ParaView", there are 2 mentions to it on the page and how to use it.

Hi . In Windows version of OpenFOAM , paraFoam does not work . Please install paraview separately . This is from FAQ from OpenFOAM website

How can I post process the results from OpenFOAM? I am unable to launch Paraview/ParaFoam from terminal?
You will need to install ParaView for Windows separately from ParaView. Create a file with the suffix ”.foam” e.g. type the command ”touch a.foam” in your case folder. Launch ParaView and browse the case folder. Open the file with suffix ”.foam” to start the post processing.
