installing plugins on network drive

Recommended Posts

Hello, and forgive me if this is already covered, but after searching here and google, I couldn't find an answer that would work.

I have a plugin, Axiom specifically, that I want to run from a network drive.  Here are the things I've tried:

- dropping the axiom folder and corresponding .json file in C:\Users\rupert\Documents\Houdini18.5\packages  (this worked...but of course it did)

This worked so I know the .json file is good, right?  So then....

- create a network directory S:\plugins\houdini\packages

- add to houdini.env
             HOUDINI_PACKAGE_DIR = "S:/plugins/houdini/packages"

- drop the axiom folder and it's json file in the above packages dir

This didn't work.  Le sigh.

Edit houdini.env,


- add the direct path to the axiom dso and otls folders for houdini 18.5.408 to HOUDINI_PATH

              HOUDINI_PATH = "S:/plugins/houdini/packageaxiom_v01_b006/houdini18_5_408;C:/ProgramData/Redshift/Plugins/Houdini/18.5.408;&"

AND...no luck.  Nada.  Sad me.

I go to read toadstorm's post on packages, which give me resolve...to post here, because I clearly am lost.

Help a brother out...teach a man to fish...Help this Maya TD help our Houdini team out.


Thanks in advance.
