HtoA search python in wrong path

Hello, I'am in OSX

I have a problem due to HtoA is searching python.framework in wrong path (old Houdini version). How I can change it manually to ensure to point to correct path?

here console report:

I tried to install this Houdini version, and then HtoA found framework and render correctly in the other Houdini release..


Thanks

This looks like a bug, thanks for reporting.

Please can you remove the line

darwin*) export DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES="/Applications/Houdini/Houdini18.0.287/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/libpython2.7.dylib"

from the file

<htoa>/scripts/bin/hick

and let us know if this doesn't fix the issue.

Thank you!

Got same problem here.
I don't understand why HtoA keep referring to Houdini18.0.287
I'm using Houdini 10.0.461 , MacOS Catalina.

5.1.1 has the same problem for H17.5.460. Arnold looks for H18 files (not installed). I can’t render. OSX too.

I can't tell from that screenshot whether it is HtoA-related or not. What library cannot be inserted?

Check Help > About Houdini > Show Details
Look for the environment variables

In show details all refers to 17.5.460

But something in someplace it's forcing to HtoA to search python framework on Houdini 18.0.287.

I tried to uninstall HtoA and Houdini with theirs uninstallers.. and install it again, but no luck. Something is forcing to HtoA to look wrong path. With Mantra all works...

I search variables with printenv command and with hconfig.

None of these commands show paths that point to wrong version 18.0.287 ... all seems correct.

But something else is force to HtoA to search Python framework on wrong place...

What does your houdini.env look like?
Can you post the Show Details from Houdini?
