Traceback errors

arnoldhoudinierror.jpg

(This is just unlicensed arnold for now) Having issue with Arnold to Houdini Indie. Windows 10. Houdini 16.5.439. Arnold = htoa-3.0.1_r0f08864_houdini-16.5.439_windows

I can't seem to get past this issue after many many hours,Things that are weird are some file paths in that error have m ismatched forward and back slashes.

I wasn't sure how to fix that or why it would do that in the first place. I have redshift, but I'm not going to add path just to keep things simple. Python I added just in case it was sourcing incorrect python version.. doesn't change result of error.

Other issues that may be similar are something to do with the visual studio side of things. tried uninstalling visual studio 2017. reinstalling 2017, uninstalling 2015, installing 2015.

adding DSO error check in env variables = Houdini DSO error will say (127) Couldn't load.

C:/Users/Max/htoa/htoa-3.0.1_r0f08864_houdini-16.5.439/htoa-3.0.1_r0f08864_houdini-16.5.439/dso/htoa_core.dll.This is probably because this file was intended for use with a different version of houdini (yet the versions match up less I'm crazy.)

#HOUDINI_USE_HFS_PYTHON = 1

# htoa config start

PATH = "$PATH;C:/Users/Max/htoa/htoa-3.0.1_r0f08864_houdini-16.5.439/htoa-3.0.1_r0f08864_houdini-${HOUDINI_VERSION}/scripts/bin" HOUDINI_PATH = "C:/Users/Max/htoa/htoa-3.0.1_r0f08864_houdini-16.5.439/htoa-3.0.1_r0f08864_houdini-${HOUDINI_VERSION};&"

# htoa config end

I've also tried hardcoded versions of the path and houdini paths

C:\Users\Max\htoa\htoa-3.0.1_r0f08864_houdini-16.5.439\htoa-3.0.1_r0f08864_houdini-16.5.439 C:\Users\Max\htoa\htoa-3.0.1_r0f08864_houdini-16.5.439\htoa-3.0.1_r0f08864_houdini-16.5.439/scripts/bin

I've tried multiple reinstalls of houdini and arnold as well as multiple versions of each. If anything I'd like a way to reset everything and not have this problem at all lol. I've installed it on a friends computer just fine, so not sure why I'm messing stuff up.

Thanks if anyone knows any solution or ideas. I've had a few people try to help and am very grateful.

few ideas were to check vcredist_x64.exe and install that. which I already had unfortunately so thats the whole visual studio stuff. and check my script error locations and see if they were in read only - they were not and they had full privileges.

If htoa_core.dll isn't loaded, HtoA isn't going to work.

I don't get any errors with HtoA 3.0.1 and Houdini 16.5.439, so either you've got the wrong version of htoa_core, or it's a dependency problem. So, try using Depending Walker.

Thank you for helping. I'm unsure of what to do with the errors I have in Dependency Walker or how to troubleshoot. As far as versioning of the htoa_core. Do you mean for example HtoA 3.0.1 for 16.5.439 I've checked this, and I've tried several different htoa versions as well as matching up the versions for 16.5.378 and 16.5.268 etc.

I've uploaded the dw file if that helps.

Looks like you're missing the Update for Universal C Runtime

Also, there's an old version of Arnold (ai.dll) in your PATH.

In the screenshot, I also highlighted the missing dependencies that suggest that the Update for Universal C Runtime is missing.

Amazing, thank you, I deleted that now just in case. As well, I'm currently on windows 10, I've been looking around for another download. I even tried running all the windows versions that the link from microsoft has But wouldn't let me since I was on windows 10. I do have in system32.

msvcp140.dll

msvcp140_1.dll

msvcp140_1d.dll

msvcp140d.dll

I've been looking around for another download but not sure if I should just download from the internet and overwrite my current .dll

https://www.sts-tutorial.com/sites/downloadCenter.php?msvcp140

https://www.sts-tutorial.com/sites/downloadCenter.php?vcruntime140

or here

https://www.dll-files.com/vcruntime140.dll.html

Just wanted to check before incase I screw up my computer. Since I couldn't find an official microsoft link for the dlls like what you sent me but for windows 10

Also since I saw VCRuntime I wasn't sure if that's related to visual studio stuff. but I just wanted to add just incase I shouldn't. I have microsoft visual c++ x64 / x86 of years 2017, 2013,2012,2010,2008, and 2005 but not year 2015 as I uninstalled it. Not sure if I should reinstall 2015 if I already have 2017.

Hey, feeling a little in the dark here. Not sure what to do still, now that the time has come to get this to work or not. Your link has nothing to do with Windows 10 OS. Even official downloads claiming Windows 10, when extracted, only have up to Windows 8 OS. This does not work for me. Not sure how to even delete these DLL's to manually install the DLL's them selves as they are currently in use by other windows Operations. I can't seem to find an alternate route or Windows 10 Compatible Universal C Runtime.

If you don't think the missing dependencies are a problem, then run Process Monitor and see what files cannot be found when HtoA is loaded.

I'm not sure, I'm sure they are a problem. I'd like to run Universal C Runtime and update them but I cannot.

Reformatted. I don't think this was going to come up with a solution to this error, too many variables. Thanks for your time Stephen. Thanks, have a good one.
