I'm relatively new to Houdini, coming over from Softimage like many 
others. I've been learning Houdini using the Apprentice license at home 
and at work. However, now has come the time to test Arnold. For that I 
need a real license. Good new, we have two floating licenses of Houdini 
FX at work, usually always used by our FX artists. But this week they 
are free. Yay!
Now how do I switch my Houdini from Apprentice to the real license?
I went in the local License Administrator tool and the option "Change 
License Server" is grayed out. Do I need to uninstall Houdini entirely 
for this? I would prefer not, especially as I will have to go back to 
Apprentice soon.
