You do not need root permissio
You do not need root permission: read the manual and you will find out how to install it in your own area.

Good luck,

Thank you. It is great to interact with you. I will try once again and let you know
My second doubt...
But we have SUN SOLARIS machine in our Lab. I want to use it there. But SUN SOLARIS latest version(1.2) is not released. How to install latest version 1.2 on SUN SOLARIS. I have all files of 1.1 version for SUN SOLARIS. New version file "OpandFoam.General.1.2.gtgz" which is for Other than Linux. (Ofcourse I have downloaded linux files also). How to proceed with out other files like "OpenFoam.sunsolaris.1.2.gtgz, gcc file, paraview file". I think java file same as 1.1 version.
Need your suggestion regarding this. Please don't mind troubling you.
Thank you
