Default Error after typing blockMesh

fshak92 is on a distinguished road

Typing "blockMesh" the "blockMeshDict" folder of both the tutorial "cavity" and "pitzDayly" gives me these errors in spite of having controlDict in the system folder:

file: /home/omid/OpenFOAM/omid-2.1.1/run/tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity/constant/polyMesh/system/controlDict at line 0.

From function regIOobject::readStream()
in file db/regIOobject/regIOobjectRead.C at line 73.

FOAM exiting

I would appreciate if anyone has an idea or suggestion regarding the mentioned error.

Hi omid88,

You're meant to run the command from within the case's root folder, not from within the "polyMesh" folder

Best regards,
