Hello, I'm doing the https://www.sidefx.com/tutorials/create-a-task-workflow-to-build-cities/ [www.sidefx.com] tutorial and I have a problem in the part05 section 2. In the “geometry import” node, I have the following errors.

I've redone every steps multiple times and still get the same errors.
Thank you

The latest, 17.5.389. I've tried on four different 17.5 build but always the same error.

I just tried 17.5.389, and had no issues cooking Building_Merge.

If you go to Tasks>Dirty All, then select Building_Merge and go to Tasks>Dirty and Cook Selected Node, do you still get the error?

Which operating system are you using?

By any chance do you have multiple drives on your machine? Are your projects stored on another drive other than C:\?

Yes ! My project is not stored in C:\

Edit: I've moved the project to c:\ but still the same error.

Yes.
I've redone the tutorial, with the file set to the project like before, but this time in C:\, and always the same error.

Could you please attach a screenshot of the work item attributes? You can access this by CTRL+MMB clicking the work item in the Wait for All node.

Sorry but I'm not sure what you mean. There is nothing more at the bottom of the window, if this what you mean !

Hi Ronan,

Could you please attach a screenshot of one of the ROP geometry work items, as well as attach the log PDG log files? Your scheduler node will show the temp directory where the log directory is located.
