Octane X ENV setup

Hi, I always used Octane on my PC, but I bought a new MAC, so I want to try Octane X, and trying to setup ENV like I do on PC, its not working.
I downloaded Octane X , On PC that folder I use it on C:
but on MAC where its go? I just move it to /Aplications
then I Find where the ENV file is,
/Library/preferences/houdini/18.5/.env
I edited and try to do the same I do on PC and added :
HOUDINI_PATH = /Applications/Octane_OctaneX_PR7_Houdini_18.5.408_OSX_vr;&

HOUDINI_DSO_ERROR = 2

Because I'm on Big Sur, obviously Hit me with errors of permissions and I allowed that via vault, and Houdini open without problem, there its an octane submenu, and I can add the shelves too, but Nothing happen
Whatever button I press on Octane Shelves hit me with a pop up that said "Unknown command"
Please Juanjo , what can I do?
Thanks
S.

First, do you know if Octane X Standalone PR7 for Big Sur works fine in this system?

Thanks,

Yes, the .env looks good to me. In MacOS you don't need to set the PATH variable like in Windows because all the Octane system libs are included alongside the plugin, so in theory, the plugin should work fine with your config file.
