I recently downloaded Maya 2014 (student edition) for Windows and each time I try to open it, a window pops up saying that it is trying to verify my license. Immediately I get a notification saying that the 'Autodesk Component' has stopped working and a few seconds after, it says that it has encountered a problem and needs to close.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled Maya, run as admin, run using integrated graphics (I saw that my graphics card isn't compatible? NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M) but nothing is working. I need this for school so fast help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Hello. I have some thoughts for you.
Click the windows start button (or the Windows button on your keyboard if you are on Win8). Type Services.msc in the run box (or just type it in Win 8) and press Enter. This should open the Services pane.
Look for the entries FlexLM Licensing Service or FlexLM Licensing Service 64. Make sure the services are not disabled and turn them on if they are. Then test.
Delete the TSF.data file. It will resemble this: ADSKFLEX_NUMBERS_TSF.data. It should be located here:
Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\FLEXnet
Start the program and a new TSF DATA file will be created and possibly a log file. You may need to activate. If so, do it. If the program now works, great.
Do you have Internet Explorer 10 installed? If so, roll back to 9.
Now test again.
