I have had a pretty difficult time trying to get OpenVDB installed for Maya 2017 over the last several days.

I've followed the readme.txt instructions and gotten help from previous versions' video instructions as best I can, but I've hit a wall at this point. Right now I've been able to see the OpenVdb shelf show up in Maya, and I'm seeing the correct node icons as well. I can see the Plugin Path show up in the Plug-in Manager, but when I try to Load the BE_OpenVDB.mll maya gives me this error.


// Error: line 1: Unable to dynamically load : C:/Program Files/Autodesk/OpenVDB for Maya/plug-ins/BE_OpenVDB.mll
The specified procedure could not be found.
// Error: line 1: The specified procedure could not be found.
(BE_OpenVDB) //


Any help would be appreciated, as I need Redshift to render particles/fluids for an upcoming deadline

Thank you

I am having this same issue with Maya 2017, downloaded in August (after update 4 which was in June). Soup loads, but I get the same loading log errors for Open VDB.

Added environment variables to look in bin (copied ai.dll)
I have many C++ redistributables (2012, 2013, 2017)

In order to get the plug-in to show i copied the one from plugins/maya2017_win into the parent plugins folder of my openvdb path:
// Error: line 1: The specified procedure could not be found.
(BE_OpenVDB) //

Going to try manually updating but please advise. / Was there a fix release? I downloaded soup + vdb fresh from the website today. I am down to buy assuming I can get it to work during trial.  Click image for larger version - Name: error_ovdb.png, Views: 14, Size: 2.97 KB

Hey guys, once again, I want to push in favor of an automatic installer...something small, but with an automatic intaller of new version and uninstaller of previous version... like Mtoa or Vray installer.

I'm thinking that it's a good idea to make an installer like the creative cloud ... something more basic, but where all the products are, so much Soup, VDB and other things that may come in the future. 
I even think that if it were so simple to install, it would attract a lot more people who are afraid or can not touch the files or the folders in the os.
