htoa-5.0.0: Unable to load .\htoa_geo.dll - Arnold does not Show Up in Houdini

Hi, after install htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-17.5.425, Arnold does not show up in Houdini 17.5.425

It's showing this message (in License Diagnostics):

00:00:00 79MB | [kick] command: C:\Users\thor\htoa\htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-17.5.425\htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-17.5.425\scripts\bin\kick -nostdin -v 1 -i Nul

00:00:00 79MB | loading plugins from . ...

00:00:00 80MB WARNING | unable to load dynamic library .\htoa_geo.dll: The specified module could not be found.


There is no Arnold in Houdini for now. How can I proceed to use Arnold, please assist.


How can I fix this. Here is my Houdini.env

# htoa config start

PATH = "$PATH;C:/Users/thor/htoa/htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-17.5.425/htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-${HOUDINI_VERSION}/scripts/bin"

HOUDINI_PATH = "C:/Users/thor/htoa/htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-17.5.425/htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-${HOUDINI_VERSION};&"

PXR_PLUGINPATH_NAME = "C:/Users/thor/htoa/htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-17.5.425/htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-${HOUDINI_VERSION}/hydra"

# htoa config end

htoa_geo.dll depends mostly on Houdini DLLs


Can you get a Process Monitor log ? That will probably show us what is wrong with your system.

How do you start Houdini?

It looks like the current directory is the HtoA scripts/bin folder. As if you did this:

cd C:\Users\thor\htoa\htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-17.5.425\htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-17.5.425\scripts\bin
houdinifx

I don't quite get your question

Here is part to Houdini:

"C:\Program Files\Side Effects Software\Houdini 17.5.425\bin\houdinifx.exe"


Here is part to Arnold:

C:\Users\thor\htoa\htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-17.5.425\htoa-5.0.0_rcd870fd_houdini-17.5.425\scripts\bin


About the part, "How to start Houdini ?"

I.... click the icon. 😄

Open the Houdini Command Line tools and start houdinifx from there.

What is output to the Houdini Console?

You do have others Houdini.env file somewhere, like json file in you packages folder! I can see Redshift in your snapshot.
Try this:
Make a backup for your Houdini Pref folder
Start new one with only houdini.env for arnold, it should work!
