set env variable : HOUDINI_PATH does not work. Oct. 27, 2022, 10:26 p.m.

I'm working in Unity trying to launch Houdini with the HOUDINI_PATH and HOUDINI_PACKAGE_DIR value set,I wrote c# code to set the env variable before launching Houdini,but after the setting,Houdini can't be open,
so,I am trying to set it in the computer,not by code, just to check out why Houdini can't open,
and now,if I add HOUDINI_PATH with value like C:\a\b\c ,it shows error:

ERROR: Couldn't open resource file "resources" (No such file or directory)

and if I add HODUINI_PACKAGE_DIR with value like :C:\a\b\c\package ,Houdini does not appear at all.
anyone can help to tell what is the standard about it.
thanks.

No UI shows after enable Editable Node Tools Oct. 12, 2022, 4:45 a.m.

just read the document again,
turn on "editable nodes tolls enabled" on "HDA_Data" node is the right way,but what i did it wrongly is that I set the paint node to be the editable node,it should be the "output0" node inside paint node,and the paint node should be unlocked.

Hi,josyzhaocn,
have you fixed it?
I am working on unity 2020.3.33f1 houdini 19,and I have the same problem,
for this version,there is no "enable editable node tools" on the hda node,but there is a "editable nodes tolls enabled" on "HDA_Data" node.I tried to enable it ,but still no UI showed out.
In my hda,there're "attribPaint" and "curve1" nodes which could be edited.
