'too many files open error' - Windows

Guest tar

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if this error is common on Windows, never seen on it on OsX. Will test more but want to flag it here too.


'Save As' failed, a dialog popped up saying 'too many files were open', there was a descriptive dialog that appeared behind Houdini saying this may happen when there are multiple Houdini installations and Environmental variables set.


The .hip file was a cloth sim with a file cached node. 


The environmental file had settings to use Intel OpenCL CPU, and a 'path' was set for Octane for an older Houdini version. There were two installations of Houdini. 


Windows 7 - SP 1, H14.0.423, 64Gb, Gtx 980, Driver 355.60
