Material error when using PDG

test_PDG_files.zipI run into a little problem when using PDG. It's a very simple scene, driven by a CSV file. Basically, a simple box that changes size & materials. I then want a render from 2 different cameras.

I tried it with Mantra & Arnold. No problems with Mantra, but here is the error that Arnold gives:

All those errors and warnings are typical of an environment issue. PATH and HOUDINI_PATH are not set correctly for HtoA

Thank you Stephen. I uninstalled htoa (it was in c:\users by default, I'm on win10pro) and reinstalled it in program files. But I still get the same error. It's just when I use PDG that the error happens, otherwise htoa works perfectly fine...

Should I set htoa to start with a json file instead?

This is what my ENV file looks like:

# htoa config start
PATH = "$PATH;C:/Program Files/Arnold/htoa6/htoa-6.0.1.0_rb2fc4a5_houdini-${HOUDINI_VERSION}.py3/scripts/bin"
HOUDINI_PATH = "C:/Program Files/Arnold/htoa6/htoa-6.0.1.0_rb2fc4a5_houdini-${HOUDINI_VERSION}.py3;&"
# htoa config end

OCIO = "C:\Program Files\OpenColorIO_1\config.ocio"

Update...

Well, I finally got to install htoa with a json file...

So I run the test again & his time I get another error... Here it is:
