Installation problems - "an older version...." Feb. 8, 2018, 12:28 p.m.
It sounds like something is wrong with your license server. You mention your Mac Air is “fairly old”. You should make sure it meets the minimum system requirements [www.sidefx.com]. If it does, try re-installing Houdini 16.5.378. If you still get the same error, contact SideFX support and send them a description of what you have tried, and a license diagnostic (open the License Administrator, then choose View > Diagnostic Information).

Houdini 16.5 crashes on startup on OSX Dec. 13, 2017, 2:03 p.m.
The ATI Radeon HD 5770 is a really old graphics card (and 1GB VRAM is not enough to run Houdini). We recommend a graphics card with at least 2GB VRAM. See https://www.sidefx.com/Support/system-requirements/ [www.sidefx.com] for full requirements.
