I just recently installed Maya 2014 and I get the pop up that it was unable to start. I also get that same pop up for each of the accompanying software such as MatchMover.
I've search all over the net and Autodesk help and several people have had this issue. Some have fixed it with DirectX and Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Service Pack 1 installs. Another solution was to install the latest Nvidia GeForce Drivers. And some couldn't get it to work after any of those solutions. That is where I am now. Below you'll find the hardware and OS I am running.
Any ideas what I could do?
-Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit SP1
-Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 Video Card
-Intel Desktop Board Extreme Series LGA 1155 DDR3 2400 Motherboard DZ77GAL-70K
-Intel Core i7-3770 Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core LGA 1155 - BX80637I73770
-Crucial m4 256GB 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SATA 6Gb/s CT256M4SSD2
-Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10)

Well I was really hopeful but unfortunately after all the changes specified it still is giving me the error.
I disabled all the anti virus software, diabled UAC, added the registry keys per this page (http://upandready.typepad.com/up_and_ready/2012/03
So I kept trying several times and still no luck...
Here's the programs installed after downloading the software (Autodesk_Maya_2014_dlm.sfx.exe) and installing again:
Below are the pop ups I get when they fail to open. The only applications that appear to work are the ones under the Autodesk Backburner 2014.
License Transfer Utility
Try the below solution
1.) Search the folder you installed the product from for a file called MSVCR100.DLL. If you find multiple copies select one with a file size of 809 KB
2.) Copy MSVCR100.DLL from the location in the install folder
Paste it into the following folders
say yes to replacing the file
3.) Reboot your system and try lunching the product again.
Found the file in the setup folder ...Autodesk\Autodesk_Maya_2014_dlm\Setup\msvcr100.
I only found one and its file size is 753 kb. I still tried copying it over to the folders specified and still no luck. Same problem as before.
I also just tried installing the recommended Maya tested video card drivers for my Nvidia Geforce 680 which shows version 320.49.
I had the latest version 332.21 installed. And still with the older tested drivers I'm getting the same errors.
Since I couldn't locate the msvcr100.dll with file size 809 kb on my PC I found it on the net located here:
I swapped them out and success! Everything works!
Thank you so much!
