This question is
. It is not currently accepting answers.
I am trying to follow the Openfoam user guide but I'm stuck at the first tutorial
In fact, when I try to run the blockMesh command (using the administrator account), the following appears:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Failed writing polyMesh.
From function blockMesh
in file blockMeshApp.C at line 325.
I tried to follow instructions given in this thread
2 but none of the two here proposed can help me.
Thanking you in advance,

I would check if you are in the proper case directory and not in any other directory, such as
$CASE/constant/polyMesh or something similar. Have you copied the tutorial from
$FOAM_TUTORIALS to your home directory or somewhere else, where you have proper permissions to read and write? I generally suggest not to use the administrator's account for your daily work.
Hope this helps, otherwise please provide more information (OpenFOAM version, etc.)

blockMesh, and what is the full command you run? $\endgroup$
