I have the same issue, no problems the other day . I have tired each step mentioned in the forum here but to no avail.
None of my other stations have any issue. The wierd thing is Maya 2009 still works on the same machine that won't launch Maya 2012??
This error could definitely have been generated due to a Microsoft update. What operating system are you running?

Hi Jessica, I am operating Vista, or rather that was what came with the computer.
As for the link you posted , I have tried everything that has been posted and still no solution.
There is no mention of windows updates in any of the postings, so I thought that it just might be that.
Since it has not been an issue on my other systems, their os is XP and Windows 7.
