ParaView crash when opening vth file with 5.11.1 on windows 11

As the title says, the window disappears while clicking the vth file. the vti files that the vth refers to are OK. (16.2 KB)

I don’t know if this helps, but: if you move the files from your folder next to the file that (indeed) crashes, the problem dissapears (i think). It doesn’t crash again.

I tried that, ie, moving the vti files to the same folder of the vth file, it still crashes. I hand-edit the vth file to remove the directory part and it still does the same thing. But, I found if I edit away all the Blocks other than the first (level 0), leaving only one Block, then it won’t crash.

BTW, the files and directories were created by vtkXMLPUniformGridAMRWriter.

Confirmed, please open an issue on
