Hy!

 

I'm quite a noob to this so please bare with me! 

I downloaded the mental ray satelitte and I expected to be able to find mayatomr plugin but I was wrong.. 

I am not sure where I should go in order to enable it!

 

Can anyone plese shine a light and help me out with this? 

Thanks a lot!

 

I will refresh this quite often so if I can provide any additional information let me know.

 

My spec in case it has some relevance:

 

Windows 7 x64

Maya 2014 - student license

 

Mobo AsRock Z77 Extreme 4

Intel i7 3770k

Nvidia 560 ti

8gigs RAM

Run the installation file again - and make sure the Mental Ray option is checked to install...
