Hey guys, I've installed Arnold version 5.0.1 for houdini 17.5.460 on windows but I can't get it to show up as a render option (I only have mantra and renderman available)

I've looked at other forums and I've changed my .env file to match my directories but no luck unfortunately 

Thisi my .env file:

#
# Houdini Environment Settings
#
# The contents of this file are read into the environment
# at startup.  They will override any existing entries in
# the environment.
#
# The syntax is one entry per line as follows:
#    VAR = VALUE
#
# Values may be quoted
#    VAR = "VALUE"
#
# Values may be empty
#    VAR = 
#

# Example:
#
# HOUDINI_NO_SPLASH = 1

# htoa config start 
 
PATH = "$PATH;C:\Users\Danny\htoa\htoa-5.0.1_r5e954ab_houdini-17.5.460/htoa-3.2.2_rdc1beed_houdini-${HOUDINI_VERSION}/scripts/bin"
HOUDINI_PATH = "C:\Users\Danny\htoa\htoa-5.0.1_r5e954ab_houdini-17.5.460/htoa-3.2.2_rdc1beed_houdini-${HOUDINI_VERSION};&"

# htoa config end

 

Any advice?

 

Thanks

this Arnold version is quite old and does not work with this "newest/current" Houdini version....  the lasted Arnold version should work

always install the correct / matching software versions....

So I updated it to arnold version 5.2.1 and changed the .env again this morning but I still get the same result.. It's still missing from my Houdini :(

5.3.0 works with 460 like it said in release notes and documentation.
