Fatal Error on Mac - Houdini 16.5.268 fails to open even after reinstall March 1, 2018, 6:55 p.m.

Hi - I ran into this today, have found a solution that works for me.

First, open the file in text edit: ~/Library/Preferences/houdini/16.5/houdini.env

Add the line: HOUDINI_ENABLE_RETINA=0 to the end, save and close. That solves the tiny font in the UI problem.

However, for me Houdini still crashes on subsequent launches if there's a ‘stats’ folder in the preferences folder. To solve this, delete everything else in the Preferences/houdini folder, so only the houdini.env remains. Relaunch Houdini and make sure to select “No, thanks” to the usage stats question.

After that you should be good to go. Hope that helps - C
