Crash when loading Ensight Gold files
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
Paraview 3.12.0 crashes when I load Fluent-generated Ensight Gold ASCII files on my Windows 7, 64-bit system. Paraview 3.10.1 installed on the same system does not.
Fluent generates Ensight Gold output as an .encas file, which is a text document pointing to other files containing geometry and surface variables. In all versions of Paraview I have tried over the past couple years, Paraview does not recognize .encas files as being associated with Ensight Gold, so when I open the file loader, I must set the filter to "all files" and then select my desired .encas file. Normally, this brings up a next screen which asks me which type of file this is, and I select Ensight Gold, and the file then loads correctly.
In Paraview 3.12.0, once I select the .encas file in the loader, the entire program crashes with no visible error message. I do not get asked what type of file the .encas file is before the crash happens.
Upon request, I would be glad to share a sample dataset that crashes Paraview 3.12.0, but the files are extremely large and so probably not appropriate to provide here.
