I posted the query below on the Paraview Support site over a week ago, but I have not had any response to it. Here is the link to it:

I will reproduce the content below for your convenience. If anyone can respond/help I would be very grateful. Please note that the attachment I refer to in my query below can be accessed via the link provided above.


I have Paraview 5.6.0 and 4.40 installed on a Windows 10 platform. I am trying to visualize transient CFD data from a multiprocessor run using openFoam. I have data for Paraview input prepared as native openFoam (distributed and reconstructed in which the respective folders includes a case.foam file) and VTK files created using the foamToVTK utility.

Paraview 5.6.0 and 4.40 fail to read in the data when I attempt to ‘Apply’ after reading the case .foam file and the ‘Case Type’ is listed as ‘Decomposed Case’. If I reconstruct the data using the appropriate utility in openFoam and then try to read it in to Paraview, there is no problem.

I will note that when I try to read in the ‘Decomposed Case’ using Paraview 4.4.0 on a Windows 7 platform, I do NOT get any error message. The error messages have been attached as a PowerPoint. I hope they come through OK.

Does anyone know why this problem is occurring with decomposed data on Windows 10?

Thank you.
