massive_turbulence is on a distinguished road

What I setup so far are two computers where openfoam was compiled with mpi in the home directory and (due to space limits), the third machine has openfoam installed on a usb drive. All three machines have the mirror duplicate of openfoam and 3rd party stuff, compilation was exactly the same.

The problem I ran into is with regards to the installation directory on the 3rd machine with respect to the 1st two where "orte" is not found in the directory that is on the other 2 machines.

Is there a way to solve this with some file editing or do I need to install openfoam into the home directory for the 3rd machine as well.

Advanced thanks to anyone, if no replies, I assume I need to fix the 3rd machine install size, Openfoam is big btw (12 gigs with paraview and QT5).
