Default simpleFoam case exits before starting the loop

Hello, I'm trying to run a case of a wind turbine in simpleFoam. The problem is after creating the mesh and starting simplefoam it exits before the first time loop without error message. At first i thought about non manifoldness on the geometry but I checked it in SolidWorks and Spaceclaim and has no errors.

I let the case folder without the geometry (to big to upload here) here for you to check.

This is the simpleFoam output when running it in parallel. When i run it normally it doesnt even show the error message.

Primary job terminated normally, but 1 process returned
a non-zero exit code. Per user-direction, the job has been aborted.
mpirun detected that one or more processes exited with non-zero status, thus causing
the job to be terminated. The first process to do so was:

Process name: [[52973,1],3]
Exit code: 142
