trustworthy_86 is on a distinguished road
I come from Indonesia. sorry if my English is not good enough.

need some advices for a problem i cannot solve alone.
Right now, I am doing a Turbomachinery Tutorial. it demonstrates the steps required for a turbomachinery simulation in Star CCM+ using the Turbo Wizard.

the Single Row Tutorial illustrates the simulation of an axial compressor blade in Star CCM+ and goes through the process of creating a mesh for a single blade row.

I have followed step by step all directions that was given in the tutorials. but when I click "OK" to generate the volume mesh, it appears something that really hates me :

BladeImporter:penFile(Z:\......bla bla...\axialSingleRow\Rotor37.estg):
Unable to open file.

can anybody help me?
FYI: all of the tutorals is illustrated in page 6113, User Guide Star-CCM+ Version 5.04.006, Turbomachinery Tutorials

In the "Importing the turbo Blades and Generating the Mesh" sub titel, we were told to create a sub-directory for the tutorial called axialSingleRow. and then, we were also told to copy the
, inlet.bndy, exit.bndy, hub.bndy and tip.bndy files from the doc/tutorials/axialSingleRow subdirectory of my

STAR-CCM+ installation into this directory.

what I did is just create a new directory named "axialSingleRow" in my private harddisk and copy paste all the .estg and .bndy files in this directory. was this the cause from the problem??

does anybody have an idea why it doesn't run??
please help me

thank you for your attention.
