I am using houdini on windows 7 and everything works nice, except that recently I noticed that every time a try to start a simple render on mplay, it take about 30s or more to start to render, even with old projects.

I tried to find here if someone was having the same problem but I could not find.

Anyone had the same problem?

Do you fix the problem ?

I am using Windows 7 64 now and I had this problem, 5 seconds delay to render.

I am fixed this problems changing the DNS server in

Control Panel ->
Network and Internet ->
Network and Sharing Center ->
Change Adapter Settings -> (click your network device) -> Properties ->
Select ‘Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) -> Properties ->
Use the following DNS server addresses

Search for two good DNS servers for your zone, you can check the DNS velocity response using ’ping' from console.

We were suffering from this issue for some time, across windows versions and houdini builds..

in our case we nailed it down to licensing.. specifically the lookup. when we put the name of the actual license server into the appropriate field in the license adminstrator and resolved that name via an entry in the hosts-file (that overrides DNS), it was perfect.

Surprisingly, entering the IP directly into the server field of the license admin didnt help, it had the same delay.

Hei I think the DNS solution worked! Thanks again!

I´ll try the name solution on the server too.
