I purchased RenderMan Pro the other day and got around to installing it over a period of last night. Boy what a struggle to get the Houdini.env sorted out and working!
I also had a trial of Arnold loaded and ended up having to remove it so the RM main menu tab would appear. If it wasn't removed the Arnold menu would show but not RM. It's likely the way the env file was set up (I'm a noob) so will either research it more or look into using json package files instead which will also be a new thing for me. I was only using Arnold for some specific tutorials anyway.
I do have one question for those who have RM 23 installed:
When I add the Shelf tool I see a RenderMan and a RenderMan RIS option. Adding RM shows the toolbar with all the icons. Adding RIS shows nothing. Is that correct? Is RIS not used for RM 23.2? I can't find anything in the current RM wiki docs related to this RM RIS.
Like I mentioned, I'm a new to this so TIA.

So far so good running it in b416. There were no errors or warnings when installing RenderMan. There were also no errors during Houdini launch and I am able to place operators without problem. I have not rendered anything yet but that's next step as I get familiar with it. I've been busy demo'ing Arnold & V-Ray for the last few weeks.
