Running OpenFOAM-v1912 on Windows7 when I try to run ParaFoam I get

The PV_PLUGIN_PATH environment value is not set

then something about 327

What files do I need to modify and how do I modify them?

- Are you able to execute `paraview` command instead? If so, please create a dummy file with a file extension `foam`, e.g. `a.foam`. Then within `paraview` fetch the file in order to load the case for visualisation.

Hope it helps.
