[LOP instancer] Crashing on Point Attributes to Copy Feb. 18, 2021, 4:15 p.m.

I've tried to follow along with the tutorial of Solaris https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqE4HYFDbGk [www.youtube.com]
on Houdini's YouTube Channel.
The material's base colour was bind by a point attribute from sop import.
then at the instancer(Instance to point LOP), I used a randomise attribute to assign instance point
a attribute with the same name of the bind.
Then, every time I tried to put this name under `Point Attributes to Copy` field, houdini crashes.
Any clues?

(File attached, try put 'leaves' in `Point Attributes to Copy`. it will crash)
Houdini version: 18.5.351 Apprentice

Redshift Licence Error Dec. 31, 2020, 4:45 p.m.

I have just downloaded redshift and its loads fine but when I go to render an output, I get error (-17) License error: Error communicating with license server.

I have disabled my firewalls and antivirus to check if this is the problem and it didnt help.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get this working? Desperate to get RS working for Houdini as I am a student and my academic facilities have shut downa, I dont have access to the softwares they would normally provide.

Thank you

Hi, All.

Try uninstall Redshift. Windows: C:/ProgramData/Redshift -> Uninstall. Then clear other logs under that folder. Reinstall Redshift and open-up your redshift license manager and they will ask you to unlock your license on previous machine(and you only have 3 chances to do that. If run out of unlocks, try email their support.) After that launch houdini again, you'll be good to go.
