unable to find default OCIO config

Hi, every time I start a render (active shade, production, net, arnold-rw) I get this message.


[Arnold]: 00:00:00 1610MB WARNING | [color_manager_ocio] unable to find default OCIO config, expected in c:\programdata\autodesk\applicationplugins\maxtoa_2022\..\ocio\configs\arnold\config.ocio

[Arnold]: 00:00:00 1690MB WARNING | [color_manager_ocio] could not find a valid config


The file "config.ocio" is located in the folder:
C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\MAXtoA_2022\ocio\configs\arnold

...and there are no restrictions to read/access that folder/file.

It happens in all my 3 PC.


I noticed the "\..\" in the search path... may be this? If yes, how to change that?

(I thought it was a way to avoid to show the entire path in the message window, but the shown path isn't truncated. That's why I have this doubt)

Thank you :)

You can safely ignore those warnings.

The warnings are because Arnold expects to be in a "bin" folder, and the "bin" and "ocio" folders to be the same level. But MAXtoA ships with Arnold in a different folder (and Arnold is in the parent of the ocio folder).
