Hello again,

I just happened to come across this..... it seems that case sensitivity can be enabled in Windows file systems if the following registry key is set to "0":

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\kernel\obcaseinsensitive

Does this work with all Windows systems? If it does, wouldnt this ease the process of porting openFOAM to a Windows platform?

Have a nice weekend!
