Houdini could not load (null)/python27/python27.dll April 25, 2017, 8:01 p.m.

didn't change the situation

happrentice works with or without it.

on the other hand my custom exe which is based on the Houdini engine API doesn't work with or without that definition.

I did found something that works, maybe it can help understand what's wrong:
“The custom exe must be placed in the Houdini installation directory which in my case is ”C:\Program Files\Side Effects Software\Houdini 16.0.557\bin"
copying the dll dependencies to a different directory near the exe won't work.
So, what I am doing is compiling the exe directly in that directory and the API seems to work fine now.

this is ok for experimenting but for automation the custom exe and the dependencies will need to be packaged, any additional ideas what could cause this issue?

Can't open dophints.cmd
Houdini could not load (null)/python27/python27.dll

any idea what are the environment variable used by Houdini? maybe there is one not found for python which translates to null

Where I can find a sample .env file? cannot find any in the houdini installation path
