Thanks. I just downgraded to Visit 2.4.2 and now it looked like I got rid of that error.
However, when trying to see a h5 file, I got the error:
The metadata server running on host localhost has exited abnormally. VisIt is trying to restart it.
Shortly thereafter, the following occured...
VisIt was unable to open "/Users/student/Cactus/VizTools/ks-mclachlan_metric.h5". Each attempt to open it caused VisIt's metadata server to crash. This can occur when the file is corrupted, or when the underlying file format has changed and VisIt's readers have not been updated yet, or when the reader VisIt is using for your file format is not robust. Please check whether the file is corrupted and, if not, contact a VisIt developer.
Moreover, when I am trying to run Cactus, I am getting this:
dyld: Symbol not found: __ZN3MPI3Win14Set_errhandlerERKNS_10ErrhandlerE
Referenced from: /Users/student/Cactus/exe/./cactus_tov
Expected in: /usr/lib/libmpi_cxx.0.dylib
I checked, and I do have /usr/lib/libmpi_cxx.0.dylib

Yes, I remember seeing that error too; although it may have only been with
version 2.5 that I saw that.
So apparently some other libraries also used to be native, and are no
longer, and I had already created the other links.
So in addition to lipmpi*, you'll also want to do
% cd /usr/lib/; sudo ln -s /opt/local/lib/libopen-pal*
Let me know if that helps.
