Shader network gone in Houdini after opening file in 18.5.696


When i open my files with the shaders they are all gone and i get this errors in the console...

i know it has something to do with the houdini path but i am not sure whre exactly the problem is.-.

this is the current state of my houdini env. file

# Example:

# htoa config start
PATH = "$PATH;C:/Users/eddi_/htoa/htoa-${HOUDINI_VERSION}.py3./scripts/bin"
HOUDINI_PATH = "C:/Users/eddi_/htoa/htoa-${HOUDINI_VERSION}.py3;&"
# htoa config end

would be cool if some one can help me because this causing real problems at the moment. thank you!

How do you open a file? If you are double-clicking a .hip file, this is a known issue. Use the File menu in Houdini.
