Can you please send the exact error message?

Can you provide an example file?

What does that mean? Does PV3 crash? Does it
just show an empty screen? Print an error

Without more specific error messages or a way
to replicate your problems, there's not much
to try. One thing you can do is renamed your
ExodusII files so that they end in ".exii" (instead
of ".exo", ".g", ...). If you read in files
with this different extension, a different Exodus
reader will be used -- one under development
to support new features.
