Failed to start the Houdini Engine session UE5

There is a problem with Houdini plugin that I have when I want to create a new session, A message comes up and says “Houdini Engine Session FAILED” any idea how to fix it?


Likely License issue. Make sure to follow the steps in this video: [TUTORIAL] Houdini Engine for Unreal and Unity - Getting Started - YouTube

Thats for UE4 and doesn’t fix the problem

I found how to fix it.

I only needed to Open Houdini it self and from there “In Houdini, go to Windows → HE Session Sync. Set it to named pipe aswell and hit start. Now in UE, click create session.”

This worked for me
