Error while activating License. Sept. 21, 2016, 4:21 a.m.

This is a bit of a shot in the dark, but “ANOMALY: meaningless REX prefix used” seems to suggest that some software on your system might be corrupt, possibly a driver, or maybe your copy of Houdini License Administrator or libraries it's using. Regular programs don't usually have code at such high addresses, so it's more likely to be a driver, but it could be a regular program calling into the system at the wrong addresses due to corruption of some sort.
Thank you for the reply. So how should I troubleshoot it? I cannot pinpoint any driver issues as everything else seems to work just fine. Should I uninstall and reinstall Houdini?

Also, I'm getting the same error on Online License Service as well, when I try to obtain the license manually from []

Error while activating License. Sept. 20, 2016, 2:26 p.m.


I'm trying to activate Houdini 15.5 under apprentice license, but I'm constantly getting following error from Houdini License Administrator.

Even if I go to Online License service located here - [] I get the same error - Did not parse header correctly.

Any Help? Thank you.
