I followed the instructions. In the Houdini License Administrator, under server information I have all green checks. The installed licenses shows just the Render-NonCommerical 11.0. I don't recall if it's supposed to show the server license.
Anyway, when I run Houdini, the “This software requires a license” box comes up.
Anybody else with this issue and/or a way to resolve?
Windows XP Pro, core2 laptop, basic laptop…version 10 ran with no problem. Thanks.
I can't seem to get a proper server license (Windows 7 64 bit Lenovo Y560 laptop with Corei7, ATI 5730 GPU)- although H10 Apprentice worked fine before this:
I get this message after following all of your directions (three times and three reboots):
Key 1: ERROR: Key installation failed for LenovoLaptop Please ensure that the server code and signature of the SERVER key for LenovoLaptop are correct
I entered the stuff as seen in the License Administrator into the page to get a key.
Also hkey.exe for H11 seems problematic to me- I can't exit out of it without the Windows window coming up and telling me it isn't responding and that I have to kill it. The hkey.exe for H10 seems fine.
I have installed the latest version; Houdini 11.0.446.9 (Apprentice), when the program asked me to install the Free Houdini Apprentice License, I said yes and it came up with a message that was successfully installed. But when ever I run Houdini, repeats the same process.
I tried to do it manually as well but nothing changed.
In the past day I have had difficulty getthing Houdini11 Apprentice HD to run on my Lenovo T61p with fx570m video card intalled with Windows7 64bit.
First I was having the problem with the repeating license screen appearing and never getting Houdini to launch. After updating to the latest windows patches I started to get a application crash when launching Houdini11 Apprentice. The last part of the crash log located in the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\crashlog_<username> looked like the following:
What I ended up doing to solve this problem was go to the properties on the Houdini icon and select the compatibility tab. Select the “Run this program in compatibiltiy mode for:” checkbox. In the pull down list I selected "Windows Vista(Services Pack 2).
After this I was able to get Houdini to launch. I have created some simple simulations with no problems.
Here is the complete crash log that is created when I run Houdini11 Apprentice without the “Run this program in compatabilty mode” option selected. This problem is very reproducable on my system as soon as I enable the compatibility mode then all is well. Hope this helps find the problem.

Been having problems trying to get this working over the past two days and have been stuck with pretty much the same problem as Craig, and now even with the automatic one I still get the key installtion failed error for the server key. Same problem appearing on my friends computer aswell. If it helps both are on windows 7 64-bit Any ideas or help would be very much appreciated Thanks for your time
