htoa: How to hide startup console

Ever since I installed htoa, a Houdini Console window will popup every time I startup Houdini (Indie). It displays a bunch of arnold info.


console window


I'm not interested in all of this and having to close this console every time I open Houdini. How do I prevent this console from displaying?


Thanks.

You can disable the HtoA startup log with HTOA_STARTUP_LOG = 0


If you really want to get rid of the consoler permanently, that more of a Houdini question. Check out HOUDINI_TEXT_CONSOLE or HOUDINI_DISABLE_CONSOLE

HTOA_STARTUP_LOG = 0 seems to be the way for me to go. Although where do I enter this information?

I entered it as an environment variable if that is what you meant and it stopped the majority of the logs from appearing but I'm still getting some info popping up:

This is all there is left

We've gone back and forth about showing the license error...iirc some customers wanted to see errors (but not success)...I'll check with the devs

A way to turn off all of htoa's console outputs through a single variable/multitude of variables would give users the choice for any combination of success, error, etc. console outputs. So this is perhaps the best solution?
