Default wingMotion in PimpleFoam: ParaView doesn't display proper mesh

Hello, I am new to OpenFOAM. I tried to run a tutorial case in incompressible/pimpleFoam/wingMotion. I copied the directory to $FOAM_RUN and ran the following commands:

# cd wingMotion/
# ./Allrun
# cd wingMotion2D_pimpleFoam/
# paraFoam &

Then paraView opened and first showed me this message.

I chose OpenFOAM and it showed me this rectangle.

Please see the two attachments. Has anyone had this problem before? Thanks for the help in advance!

didnt understand the problem, but another way of opening OF solutions in ParaView is to directly use ParaView instead of OF's paraFoam script.

Create a dummy file inside your simulation directory, e.g. 'touch a.foam'

Open it with ParaView, e.g. 'paraview a.foam'.
