thank Andrew/Edward,
 I'll start by setting the setting 'HOUDINI_SCRIPT_LICENSE  = hbatch' 
and see how I go.

the help says if it's unable to find a hbatch then it will then use a 
master license.. unfortunately I don't think there is an option to have 
the fallback license as hescape

thanks
  Miles
