I installed gmsh and OF under windows xp.
I meshed "NS-tube.geo" from the examples without problems.
When I try to start the simulation OF will brake down without any nessage.
In the dos shell I see:
"Simulation data file:"
Then I type: NS_tube.flw or NS_tube and the shell is vanishing!
What is wrong with my proceedings?
Thanks for help.
I have the same problem! Did you ever get an answer?
I have a little more info.. if you start a cmd console, it will not vanish after the error. I got the same problem. The error is that openfoam is looking for the mesh file, which does not exist for any of the example files.
