Problems with fluent mesh and createpatch

i converted a fluent Mesh in OpenFOAM Mesh. Now I want to create the patches for the inlet, outlet and the walls. So I first created faceSets with the box tools in the faceSetDict and then created patches with these faceSets.

While running the createPatch I get the following message:

Create time

Reading createPatchDict.

Using relative tolerance 0.001 to match up faces and points

Create polyMesh for time = 0

Adding new patch inlet of type empty as patch 2

Read 1508 faces from faceSet inletfaceSet

Doing topology modification to order faces.

Synchronising points.
Points changed by average:0 max:0

Removing patches with no faces in them.

No patches removed.

Attempt to cast type polyMesh to type fvMesh

From function refCast<To>(From&)
in file /home/cluster/cmau/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5-dev/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/typeInfo.H at line 106.

FOAM aborting

Has anyone an idea how to solve this problem?
