Houdini 17.5 and deadline - cannot submit jobs


#1

Hi there,

I have installed Deadline-10.0.28.2 on windows to make it work with houdini 17.5.
When I try to submit a rop i get this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “C:/Users/paolo/AppData/Local/Thinkbox/Deadline10/submitters/HoudiniSubmitter/DeadlineHoudiniClient.py”, line 14, in
path = CallDeadlineCommand([ “-GetRepositoryPath”, “submission/Houdini/Main” ]).strip()
File “C:/Users/paolo/Documents/houdini17.5/python2.7libs\CallDeadlineCommand.py”, line 42, in CallDeadlineCommand
proc = subprocess.Popen(arguments, stdin=subprocess.PIPE, stdout=subprocess.PIPE, stderr=subprocess.PIPE, startupinfo=startupinfo, creationflags=creationflags)

startupinfo)
WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified

what can I do?
Thanks

nobody?

I would like to make it work!!!


#3

Is the environment variable for DEADLINE_PATH defined?

CallDeadlineCommand may have required DEADLINE_PATH.
