Maya hangs upon launching with error in Command Window

So I just installed Maya 2013 successfully the other night and used it.  Yay!  But tonight, it fails to fully open and has hung  up on me several times.  I had to reboot my Mac many times and every time I attempt to lauch Maya I get the dreaded Command Window error:

 

// Error: file: /Applications/Autodesk/maya2013/Maya.app/Contents/scripts/startup/layerEditor.mel line 4392: Could not find attribute named "defaultRenderLayer.precompTemplate" //

 

// AbcImport v1.0 using Alembic 1.0.4 (built Jan 16 2012 13:46:55)

 

// AbcExport v1.0 using Alembic 1.0.4 (built Jan 16 2012 13:46:55)

 

updateRendererUI;

 

 

I've tried deleting all my Maya stuff from my computer and re-installing the whole shebang but still no cigar.  

I just doesn't work.  Boo!   

 

Should I re-register and get a new code/download then?

Delete your preferences and restart Maya. The folder is in:

 

WINDOWS

C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\maya\2013-x64

 

MAC

Users > YOURUSERNAME > Library > Preferences > Autodesk > Maya > Maya  > 2013-x64

If that doesn't do it, uninstall (Delete) Maya and re-install it.  The 2012 instructions shoud be the same at the 2013 instructions.

Okay, so I deleted what needed to be deleted, however, this did not solve my problem.

When I now attempt to install MAYA 2012 or 2013, Although I have 'Select your Os...' as a selection under the 'Operating Systems'  menu, the download page does not recognize that I have this selected and gives me this error:

 

http://students.autodesk.com

Please pick an operating system

 

 

I own a MacBook running the latest Os software...Installing Maya 2013 the first time, worked fine.  Why this error now??

Please download the full updated version and use your EDU serial number here:

 

http://usa.autodesk.com/getdoc/id=DL19834912

 

Please note that Matchmover will not work so do not install that component for now.  You must use the original Maya 2013 release.

I am having the same problem but with Maya 2015. I deleted Maya re installed and tried again. Then I deleted Maya and downloaded service pack 2, still nothing. I cannot seem to find the preferences file you referred to. I am using an iMac and I am running a student version of Maya. Please could you help me im not sure what else to do?
