hi, I Have AutoDesk Building Design Suite 2013 installed, including 3ds max design 2013, I have downloaded Matchmover (from subscription) 2012 (64bit) And i get a License error (please see the attached image). I don't own Maya..
Things I have tried.
I added the enviromental variable ADSK_MATCHMOVER_LICENSE and set it equal to 3dsMaxDesign.
I also tried setting it to 3DSMAXDESIGN I don't know if it's case senstive, Either way it just gave me a different error
I also tried just setting it to 3dsMax
(also see attached image)
I have tried simply unistalling and resinstalling it, along with rebooting . same error
I have tried starting the flexlm service , and set it to automatic
I have tried renaming the c:\programdata\flexNET folder
I have tried renameing the c:\programdata\autodesk\adLM folder. . same error (longshot)
I have tried everything here http://xsisupport.com/2010/10/20/matchmover-or-com
Matchmover only creates one log file in c:\flexlm folder, it does not create the adlm.log file
At one point I might have had Maya 2012 Trial installed, but it has Long since been unistalled.. and I think i've reformatted since. (thou flexLM i think writes to certain HDD sectors)
I have *not* tried Unistalling *everything*, and deleting all the autodesk Programdata files. I would rather not do this
My computer is Clean and virus free
Autodesk composite works fine.
What happens if you set the ADSK_MATCHMOVER_LICENSE variable = to 3dsMax? For more information on how to set environment variables in Windows, please refer to the following blog post.
Please accept as a solution if this fully resolves the issue, or reply with additional specifics if the problem persists.
I have worked with a customer with this issue. You must have 3DS Max Design 2012 installed. You download matchmover.msi to install it.
I would definitely add a system environmvont variable (not user) as noted in the attachment.
If this is the case, shouldn't I have access to matchmover 2013 in my subscription list?, i'm assuming matchmover 2013 will work with 3dsmaxdesign 2013 (currently installed)
