Maya 2012 won't load after Windows OS upgrade

After performing an upgrade from Windows Vista to Windows 7 I am unable to get Maya or Matchmover to work. When I run Maya (2012 x64) the output window loads and then nothing else loads.


Matchmover simply shows the splash screen with the following error message:

License was not obtained

License method:
environment variable MAYA_Licence_Method= ‘standalone’

Product choice:
environment variable MAYA_LICENSE=’unlimited’

License file override:
environment variable MAYA_ALT_EN is not set


Any ideas would be appreciated!

After uninstalling and following the Autodesk instructions to perform a clean uninstall and to delete the appropriate registry entries, the problem still persists.


Only the Output Window loads and then nothing else.


If anyone can help, it'd be appreciated!
