Houdini help file is blank

Recommended Posts

I just installed Houdini apprentice on my laptop. When I try to open the Houdini help file by clicking on the question mark.I just get a blank page.

This does work on my other laptop. So i don't really know what the problem could be.

Sigh ... 5 years later ... the same problem ... but inconsistent.    One time the help works... next it doesn't.   This on Win 7  Houd version 15.5.607

Sorry to hear that, no problem at moment in Windows 10 and Houdini Indie 15.5.480.

Fresh installation of Houdini?

TBH, I prefer more the online documentation than the inline help.
