Hello - I'm having an issue importing a Houdini Digital Asset into Cinema 4D. When I go to Pipeline > Houdini Engine > Load asset and then choose my asset, I get this error:


Which is odd, because when looking at the License Administrator on this computer, it says I have Houdini Engine Indie installed:


I've researched this error but can't seem to find any answers. And as far as I know, if you have Houdini Engine Indie installed, it has support for Importing Digital Assets into Houdini. I'm not sure if this is relevant to this issue, but when I look at the license manager on Houdini's website, it displays all my licenses as “LOCKED”. Does this have something to do with it? Here's an image:


Thank you in advance for any help! I've been trying to figure this out forever!

Also - I've tried importing assets I've created myself, and assets downloaded from orbolt. The extensions are “.otl” and “.hdanc”. Neither seem to work.

hdanc (Apprentice) assets can't open in C4D.
here's the SideFX compatibility chart:

Please open a non apprentice asset and post any screenshots with the error
