Hello i have been trying to run 16.5.496 but i keep getting a plethora of DSO ERRORS.
One of them is:
“Houdini DSO Error (127) Couldn't load
CPROGRAM FILES/SIDEFFECTS/HOUDINI 16.5.378/dso/HOM_Alembic.dll.

This is probably because this file was intended for use with a different version of Houdini.”
Then it goes hindie.exe has stopped working.
I really dont know whats happening but it seems to be referencing the old houdini version 16.5.378.
Is there a way i can fix the new 16.5.496 while still keeping 16.5.378?

Here is my .env file
#
# Houdini Environment Settings
#
# The contents of this file are read into the environment
# at startup. They will override any existing entries in
# the environment.
#
# The syntax is one entry per line as follows:
# VAR = VALUE
#
# Values may be quoted
# VAR = “VALUE”
#
# Values may be empty
# VAR =
#

# Example:
#
# HOUDINI_NO_SPLASH = 1

#RS install
#
HOUDINI_DSO_ERROR = 2
PATH = “CProgramData/Redshift/bin;$PATH”
HOUDINI_PATH = “CProgramData/Redshift/Plugins/Houdini/16.5.378;&”

When i remove the RS install, the DSO error goes away, but houdini 16.5.496 still crashes on startup.
Sorry i am new to all this and i don't know why this is happening.
Thanks in advance

When i open H.16.5.496, it gives errors about H.16.5.378:

“Houdini DSO Error
(127) Couldn’t load
CPROGRAM FILES/SIDEFFECTS/HOUDINI 16.5.378/houdini/dso/HOM_Alembic.dll.
This is probably because this file was intended for use with a different version of Houdini.”

“Houdini DSO Error
(127) Couldn’t load
CPROGRAM FILES/SIDEFFECTS/HOUDINI 16.5.378/houdini/dso/ROP_Alembic.dll.
This is probably because this file was intended for use with a different version of Houdini.”

“Houdini DSO Error
(127) Couldn’t load
CPROGRAM FILES/SIDEFFECTS/HOUDINI 16.5.378/houdini/dso/SOP_Alembic.dll.
This is probably because this file was intended for use with a different version of Houdini.”

“Houdini DSO Error
(127) Couldn’t load
CPROGRAM FILES/SIDEFFECTS/HOUDINI 16.5.378/houdini/dso/ROP_Agent.dll.
This is probably because this file was intended for use with a different version of Houdini.”

and then
“hindie.exe has stopped working”

Updated Houdini.env:

#
# Houdini Environment Settings
#
# The contents of this file are read into the environment
# at startup. They will override any existing entries in
# the environment.
#
# The syntax is one entry per line as follows:

# VAR = “VALUE”
#
# Values may be empty
# VAR =
#

# Example:
#
# HOUDINI_NO_SPLASH = 1

#RS install
#
HOUDINI_DSO_ERROR = 2
PATH = “CProgramData/Redshift/bin;$PATH”
HOUDINI_PATH = “CProgramData/Redshift/Plugins/Houdini/16.5.496;&”

If you are getting DSO errors when launching, make sure you are using the correct (latest?) release of Redshift for your build of Houdini, that might be the problem. If you are uninstalling Redshift, but you are leaving the references to ProgramData/Redshift in houdini.env, that might cause a crash; try commenting out the PATH/HOUDINI_PATH lines in houdini.env and see if that lets you launch Houdini again.

Good luck!
I'm o.d.d.

even more issues now, i get this message on startup for houdini 16.5.378:
Houdini has detected a new version of Windows, and may run slower as a result.
Contact SideFX about getting an upgrade to Houdini to address this issue.
To skip printing this message in the future, set the environment variable
TBBMALLOC_PROXY_ENABLE=0
thanks windows for forced updates
also weird thing is happening with 16.5.496, when i open it, i get 16.5.378 splash screen and then a crash.
