I'm trying to learn to use snappyHexMesh, so am trying to complete the flange tutorial. I'm using OpenFOAM v7

I have run into an issue I can't solve.

The steps I undertake are:
1) copy tutorial directory and stl file to my run directory

cp -r $FOAM_TUTORIALS/mesh/snappyHexMesh/flange .
cp -r $FOAM_TUTORIALS/resources/geometry/flange.stl.gz .flange/constant/triSurface
2) Move to the tutorial directory
3) Run blockMesh
4) Try to run surfaceFeatureExtract, however I get the following error:

HTML Code:
cannot find file "/home/carl/OpenFOAM/carl-7/run/flange/system/surfaceFeatureExtractDict"
In the systems directory there is a surfaceFeaturesDict, but not a surfaceFeatureExtractDict. Has the name changed in the new version, or does anyone know why i'm getting this error?
