Error when using HDRI in Houdini / Arnold

Edit: For clarity, I'm using Houdini FX 16.5.268, and htoa 2.2.0

Hi there,

first time poster, etc. This is crucial for an assignment that is due soon, and I have no idea what is causing this. My lecturer has already looked at my project previously, and could render HDRIs just fine on his end with my file, soo..

Anyway, whenever I plug an HDR into the texture input for a Skydome light in Houdini (tried with at least 10 different ones now), the console will always throw this error when trying to render (after generating scene):

00:00:23 670MB ERROR | [texturesys] C:/Users/User/hdris/lenong_2_2k.hdr was untiled, rejecting Invalid image file "C:/Users/User/hdris/lenong_2_2k.hdr"

00:00:23 670MB ERROR | [texturesys] Invalid image file "C:/Users/User/hdris/lenong_2_2k.hdr" 00:00:23 670MB ERROR | [texturesys] Invalid image file "C:/Users/User/hdris/lenong_2_2k.hdr" 00:00:23 670MB ERROR | [texturesys] Invalid image file "C:/Users/User/hdris/lenong_2_2k.hdr" 00:00:23 678MB ERROR | [texturesys] Invalid image file "C:/Users/User/hdris/lenong_2_2k.hdr" 00:00:23 678MB WARNING | render terminating early: received abort signal

This happens on both my C and D drive, no matter where the files are located. Any help would be GREATLY apprecitated.

You probably have Accept Untiled disabled (and auto tx generation is probably disabled too)
