Houdini Engine requires Unity APIs not available on other platforms than PC on PC and Mac on Mac. When you switch Platforms in Unity, as far as our Unity plugin code is concerned, you are now on that platform (say, Android) - as if you were running your game on your phone. Since there is no Houdini available on Android, Houdini Engine cannot work.

That said, if you switch to an unsupported platform and then back to a supported one, all Houdini Engine assets in your scene should come back to life without the need to recook anything. It's not the best workflow but you can adjust Engine assets in PC mode while doing your playtesting and other development in the platform of choice.

We just fixed this issue. So the latest daily build of Houdini Engine should now work in Unity Editor when targeting other platforms, including Android.
