I am new to OpenFOAM

I have installed OpenFOAM5 on Ubuntu on Windows10 following the instructions on the OpenFOAM web site.

I created a users directory (/home/rclement/OpenFOAM/rclement-5.0/run/) under the OpenFOAM subdirectory and copied the pitzDaily example from the tutorials directory to that location. I then succefully ran this copied tutorial (blockMesh, simpleFoam, and paraFoam).

I then copied the pitzDaily example to a new subdirectory (.../run/Sonic0/). I edited the BlockMeshDict file and tried to run blockMesh. This failed because of a wmake error, the complete output is below.

My question is, why did the blockMesh command work for the pitzDaily but fail for my modified blockmeshdict when the fail appear not be be related to the blockmesh file.

I just had this same issue (also new user), for custom non-uniform boundary conditions.

You need to install make in your WSL. Open the Ubuntu terminal, and do a

Code:
sudo apt-get install make
That solved the issue for me.

Thanks fr the suggestion axjjienn,

I ended up reinstalling and didn't have the problem come back, so don't know what was causing the original issue.
