My apprenticehoudini is refusing to install a new non-commercial license since this morning boot. Can this be caused by the traffic sidefx is sure receiving currently?
Should I wait or dig deep in the forums and my system?

The system hasn't changed - as usual

Hi Georg,

Are you getting any kind of error message when trying to get an apprentice license?

This is a screencapture of the error.
I tried to open an hip file this morning and Houdini tried to get a new license.
could it be it mixed something up, trying to open an file while beeing unauthorized - thinking it is an Master version that will be downgraded for this session?

Thank you for taking a look!

Georg

I'd like to chime in on this as another person experiencing the same problem.

Error installing key …
Install Error Invalid license key specified
ERROR Key installation failed for…

License Administrator displays all green dots for Server info tab
but blank on installed license tab.

I've uninstalled/reinstalled and started/restarted server;
manually installed keys, deleted/undeleted keys and now I've run out of ideas.

Any help will be appreciated.

still the same.
I could restart my router - maybe my ip got banned?

I'd rather not wrestle with the admin tool for now.

(back in 2005 when I first tried to use Houdini I clicked the admin button instead of the non-commercial (advanced as I was ) wrecked everything and didn't touch Houdini for almost two years …)

We had a little hiccup with our systems, so it's nothing to do with your router.

I've fiddled some settings on our end, so could you give it a try one more time?

Now I am getting that problem - since this morning.

“invalid server key” - the license server is running, but cannot serve licenses.

Any help would be great!

With Houdini 9 being released as a Open Beta in 5 days I would assume SESI has changed the licensing a bit. I suspect all these problems with getting Apprentice licenses are related to that.

I just downloaded 8.1 and it installed and validated just fine. :?
