  1. HOUDINI_USER_PREF_DIR

    Afternoon all, I've come across this a problem a few times and never managed to get my head around it properly. Hopefully someone can give me a better understanding of how to do this. Ideally I'd like to have a collection/package of otls, scripts/modules, icons etc that equate to a toolset. I would like to be able to keep these separated from the houdini install and user prefs and just be able to 'plug them in' to houdini - ideally only changing a line or two in the houdini.env file. If I put all the bits and bobs in the correct locations in 'C:/users/garf/MyDocuments/houdini16.0' then it all works fine - it picks up the modules, connects the icons etc 'C:/Users/garf/Documents/houdini16.0/python2.7libs' 'C:/Users/garf/Documents/houdini16.0/config/Icons' 'C:/Users/garf/Documents/houdini16.0/shelves' However I want these to be in a separate package somewhere like this: 'C:/users/garf/Documents/MyExtraToolSet/houdini16.0/python2.7libs' 'C:/users/garf/Documents/MyExtraToolSet/houdini16.0/config/Icons' 'C:/users/garf/Documents/MyExtraToolSet/houdini16.0/shelves' in addition I've tried changing my HOUDINI_USER_PREF_DIR variable with the houdini.env file HOUDINI_USER_PREF_DIR=C:/users/garf/Documents/MyExtraToolSet/houdini__HVER__ but when I hconfig HOUDINI_USER_PREF_DIR in the shell, it still says 'C:/Users/garf/Documents/houdini16.0/' and nothing links up Any pointers appreciated. Cheers
