How did you do the install?, these install files worked for me on W10.

mpi is multiple parallel instructions or multiple processors for parallel computing. W10 comes with its own mpi software. Nightly means it is updated every night. The exe is a self installer package and the zip is an archive with the files in it including the executable files. No other software is needed to run ElmerGUI the exe is ElmerGUI.exe to run the solver it is ElmerSolver.exe

You should be able to start paraview first and then open the vtu from within paraview. Sounds like you clicked on the vtu file and windows wants to know which app to use to open it. If you to tell it to associate vtu files with paraview. You answer the openwith question by finding the paraview executable.

In Ubuntu 18.04, Paraview opens from ElmerGUI Screen on Clicking Start Paraview. Paraview Opned has .vtu file.

Why same not possible in Windows - ElmerGUI.

I am sure it is possible but the developers/programmers would have to add the option.
