Hey everyone!

I am using OpenFOAM 4.1 with ParaView 5.0.1 and I have a case with buoyantSimpleFoam.
My simulation runs fine and when I execute the command
Code:
paraFoam -builtin
it opens ParaView with my case.
The problem is that no results are shown, only "virtualBlocks" or "Solid Color".
I already tried to reinstall Paraview, but the problem persists. I would like to avoid to reinstall OpenFOAM (or even Linux...) from scratch.

Does anyone have some suggestions or knows what might be the problem?

Thanks in advance!
Best regards,
Joćo Gil

It might not be the same issue, but in my case there was an issue with the naming while copying files etc. Phi and phi could not be in the same folder, and I could not see the results ( only the solid colors etc...) when opening the case on Paraview.

Changing the name from Phi to Phi_ in the 0/ folder solved the issue for me.

UPDATE: I had to 1) Refresh the case to see the Cell Arrays appearing 2) Toggle off/on a Cell Array (Ex:U) and hit "Apply" for it to load...weird bug
