Sample case component error, missing sampleDict folder and .xy file


I was trying to reload a case with the Butterfly_Sample Case component to adjust the test point surface for new results. I have however encountered this error.

1. Solution exception:Could not find a part of the path ‘C:\Users\christopher\butterfly\outdoor_airflow_PB_FlippedRibbed\postProcessing\sampleDict\1000\wind_analysis_u.xy’.

The sampleDict folder with the file was not created in the postProcessing folder. I wonder what went wrong?

Thanks in advance for the help!


I have the same problem when using the sampleCase component. Any one with any updates or solutions? Thanks!!

I also have the same problem when using the sampleCase component. Some feedback here would be much appreciated!

Cheers :wink:


I’ve the same issue… Did someone solve it ?

I also have the same problem. I don’t know what caused it, but I’ll write my solution here for others who encounter the same problem.

The last line of the ir.bat file in the project folder was as follows.

postProcess | tee log\postProcess.log

I modified it as follows and executed the ir.bat file.

postProcess -func sampleDict -latestTime | tee log\postProcess.log

If you run sampleCase afterwards, the ir.bat file is still not written out correctly, but it will work because it has been sampled once.
