Hello out there.

I downloaded the Aprentice Version.. 4 days ago. Worked fine till today. now it Houdini Simply will not open. It goes througth the checking for server but doesn't find one. Then the installer asks me to install the licence server again.. that is successful, then the installer checks for the lic over the net again unsucessful… and then back it starts over again.
I have uninstalled houdini and restated. Now I will try to reset my modem.. Ugg..

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hello,

Can you please post the diagnostic information? Go to Start -> Programs -> Side Effects Software -> Houdini 5.5.xxx -> Houdini License Administrator

In the License Administrator, please go to View -> Diagnostic Information…, save the information & then post it here.

Thanks!

Cheers!

Hi there,

The date on your machine is currently set to March 13 which caused your licenses to expire.
License Administrator output:
=============================
Generated on: Thu Mar 13 19:19:19 2003

Please correct the date & then try running Houdini. If it still does not run, please start the License Administrator then Right-Click on the license string & select “Return License”. Please return all licenses you have then quit the License Administrator.

Now, start Houdini & you should be prompted to install Apprentice Licenses.

I hope the above helps!

Cheers!

Another way after correctly fixing your date/time is to reboot your computer. If you do this, then you don't have to return your licenses.

Another thought- this happened to me recently with the install on my laptop After several tries I found my NIC card came loose/Once I reseated it correctly Houdini started up fine. I.E. check your network connections.
