dear hamed
several suggestions:
1- first try to install a distribution of Linux :D ( Ubuntu is preferred)
if you can not get rid of windows :D, you can use VMware or virtualbox
2- install OpenFoam on your linux
because OpenFOAM in windows is like a pain in the ass :D

However your problem is some where else
you used your command wrongly! that command needs that you enter the .msh file name after the command
