capisedano is on a distinguished road

I have been using the pisoFoamTurbine solver contained in the SOWFA software ( I'm using the SST turbulence model. To do so, I have included U, p, k and omega sub-directories as initial conditions for the case. However when when I run pisoFoamTurbine, it shows the following error:

Reading field, p...
Reading field, U...
Creating vorticity field, omega...

unexpected class name volScalarrField expected volVectorField
while reading object omega

file: /home/camilosedano/OpenFOAM/camilosedano-2.3.1/Turb/1_Turbina/0.25M/0/omega at line 15.

From function regIOobject::readStream(const word&)
in file db/regIOobject/regIOobjectRead.C at line 136.

FOAM exiting

To solve it, I change the class of the "omega" file from volScalarField to volVectorField, and change the values from scalar to vector notation. When I run the solver again it shows the same error, but this time it states that it should read a volScalarField (as it used to be) instead of a volVectorField.

I have been looking at the solver code to see if I can find anything that leads to this error but I haven't found anything. I'm new to OpenFOAM so thanks for any help you can give me.

Thank you,
