Open big *.VTK files with ParaView
I’m having poblems to open big vtk files ( about <4GB) with ParaView. With smaller files I have no Problems. For the big files ParaView says that “ a reader for D:... could not be found. Please choose one”.. When I choose the vtk type the files gets loaded but nothing is visible.
I first posted the topic in the VTK User mailing list. There I got the following answer from Cory (She said I should repost it here): "As I recall, Microsoft's runtime requires the use of special file-handling functions for reading files larger than 4 GB, even when running on a 64-bit version of Windows. I do not believe the VTK legacy library does not use these functions, which is likely why you are seeing this behavior in ParaView. I'm not aware of a simple fix, unfortunately."
Does somebody know a solution?
My System: ParaView 5.2.0 Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit i7-6700 @ 3.4 Ghz with 32 GB Ram
Thanks for your help.
