Hi I've been trying to solve my error by looking through the questions here but I haven't been able to solve it. this is my env file:

#
# Houdini Environment Settings
#
# The contents of this file are read into the environment
# at startup. They will override any existing entries in
# the environment.
#
# The syntax is one entry per line as follows:
# VAR = VALUE
#
# Values may be quoted
# VAR = "VALUE"
#
# Values may be empty
# VAR =
#

# Example:
#
# HOUDINI_NO_SPLASH = 1

#ARNOLD
HOUDINI_USE_HFS_PYTHON = 1
# htoa config start
PATH = "$PATH;C:/HTOA17/htoa-5.4.1_r8b71461_houdini-${HOUDINI_VERSION}/scripts/bin"
HOUDINI_PATH = "C:/HTOA17/htoa-5.4.1_r8b71461_houdini-${HOUDINI_VERSION};&"
# htoa config end



# GAMES DEVELOPMENT TOOLSET
HOUDINI_PATH = $HOUDINI_PATH;$APPDATA\SideFX\GameDevToolset\17.5\1.220;&
PATH = $APPDATA\SideFX\GameDevToolset\17.5\1.220\bin;$PATH



and this is from Houdini ->Help->About Houdini

Try doing it so that HtoA is at the end of PATH.
Like in what I posted here:

I tried what you suggested about changing the env file but still getting the very same error, It didn't seem to care if the htoa config path is before or after game dev toolset path in the env file. Could it be something else what I'm doing wrong?

You have Redshift loading from somewhere and it seems to be mixing.

thanks for commenting, that was something strange, either way I uninstalled both redshift and game dev tools and still the same error.

Hi
There is also Mops in your path
a quick fix is by renaming houdini17.5 folder.
- Start houdini and close it. a new Houdini 17.5 folder is generated when you close Houdini
- Start Houdini with only HtoA in your houdini.env file. arnold should work correctly.
- add other plugins one by one for debugging
Hop this help

Thank you for taking the time to look through my error, but still no luck after trying your solution, it keeps throwing the same error . Anyways thank you for the info about the folder, I didn't know it.

Should work!
if you have the same error that's mean Redshift, MOPS and Game Dev Toolset still pointing to the same path, the most problem is with the append sign at the end (;&)

Hi and thank you for replying once again, what I meant was the same type of error, when placing a light for example. The computer is new maybe I need some other complements or software. Anyway, these are my new env file, and Houdini->Help->AboutHoudini-> Show details: (they're uploaded as separated files I hope)
