Failed to open *.h5 file - Unsupported fileformat


I’ve just download and installed HDFView 3.1.0 on my workstation and tried to open a *.h5 file which was created by also the latest version of ANSYS Discovery AIM and got the following error message:
Can anybody please help me to localize the problem source?


Hello Csaba,

One cause for this error is a path name containing unicode characters. It looks like this could be the issue.
Can you try moving the file to a location that does not contain unicode characters to see if that solves the issue?
