So far I tried this much.

I used the template called cavity inside the icofoam folder and copied it to a folder called CFD.

I then tried to create the mesh by doing

mesh utilties->generation->blockmesh-> right click and start

which generates these files inside of constant/polymesh/

boundary, faces, neighbour, owner, points

now I'm not sure how to generate a .foam file to open in paraview, any ideas?

I did try using the echo command in windows as this thread says and then tried opening it with Paraview but then it crashed.

#10 on this thread maybe the answer,

Hi,

Regarding your question "now I'm not sure how to generate a .foam file to open in paraview, any ideas?", if you are still interested take a look here:
http://www.fm.energy.lth.se/fileadmi...rExercise1.pdf

go to page 10.

Simply, you have to create an empty file with *.foam (or *.openFOAM depending what version of ParaView you have on computer) extension in your case folder.

For OpenFOAM under Windows, you can download version OpenFOAM 1.5 installer from here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/openfoam-mswin/
