This provides a guide for studios employing a zero-install configuration.

  1. Setup the server side of the studio licensing on the dedicated server.

  2. Install Houdini and all required components and commit this to your versioning software.

  3. Setup a DNS SRV with details _sesi-lm._tcp for easier management of the license server.

  4. On windows, Hserver should not be installed as a service on the client machine. This informs licensing that it should operate like its on Linux/OSX. What this means is that Houdini will try to startup Hserver if its not already running. Additionally, it allows studios custom launch scripts to start Hserver without requiring administrative privileges.
