So I am trying to install Maya 2015 this is my first time with ir and everything however when I do i keep getting this message saying "Source File not Found check and verify it exsist" and I look it up and it seems to be there but it does nothing and I don't know what to do. Can someone please help? I have screen captured a picture of what it looks like and proof that it is there.
Hello FedoraPrime and welcome to the Autodesk Community!
Typically that error pops up when your antivirus or firewall is blocking your product. In some cases the file name can sometimes been too long which would generate the error but yours looks good from the picture. If you try disarming your firewall and the error persists, it's possible that your product didn't install correctly and you may need to try again. Apologies for the inconvenience! Please let me know if I can assist further. Thanks!
Jessica is right. This issue is almost certainly caused by your anti-virus. Make sure it is temporarily disabled, your UAC is off, and you are installing with local admin rights.
I swear to god I'm ready to freaken cry this has become so god darn infuriating but I need this for school, no sadly the alternitive download did not work I still got the same message, ended up being able to actually put in the Serial Number a this time however same problem ended up showing up
As the other folks on this thread have mentioned, this is likely linked to anti-virus, firewall or UAC blocking access to certain files. I'd strongly recommend checking again if you have admin rights when you installed the software.
Also, did you happen to change the default installation path? Could you try installing using the default directory?
