Some time ago I created new solver, which worked on computer (so code is for sure OK), and now I tried to compile it on my personal computer. But after going to apropriate folder and writing command:
"bash ./Allwmake"
I got loads of warnings and error. Below in file you can find all messages from shell.

Last line is in polish language:
"make: *** Brak reguł do wykonania obiektu `chtMRSimpleFSource'. Stop."
and it means:
"make: *** No rules to make a target `chtMRSimpleFSource'. Stop."

I also made a test: I copied other OpenFoam solver, and I changed only it's name. After that I tried to compile this "new" solver, but I got very similar warnings and errors.
I have no idea what's going on. Is there anyone who can help me with this problem? It's really annoying :/
Thanks for all help!

I forgot to add: I am using 2.1.x OF version
Anyway, now I see, that almost all warning and errors come from, maybe it's a problem with path to fvCFD.H file? If yes, how can I change it?

Did you run a proper wclean first?

Then, check Make/options and Make/files.

Thanks for fast reply!
Making "wclean" was not a problem but... ... I made one other idiotic error... I just thought that I need to write command "wmake <name of new solver>" when I want to compile a new solver... I forgot that I need only "wmake" command, when I am in apropriate folder. Because name of my folder and name of my new solver were different, so it didn't work. Now everything works fine. Sorry for wasting your time
