I had the student version of Maya on my laptop until the HD kept crashing, I have recently replaced that hard drive and able to download Maya 2013 and install onto my laptop but the program closes everytime it opens with a Fatal Error message:
Fatal Error. Attempting to save in
I NEED HELP ASAP to properly function at school part-time and work. No one has contacted me for a solution for the past three days! Since this is my home computer, the tech staff at my school identify that issue but I have to contact support from Autodesk themselves.
Welcome to the peer forum!
Clear your %TEMP% folder and possibly even modify the system variable to move it to another folder, such as C:\Temp, for example. I would assume at the very least that you have local admin rights on your machine?
That error is unrelated to a license error, though. You won't be able to activate it until you can actually launch it.
Reassigning the temp drive didn't help, also reinstall the software after uninstalling to start fresh, error messages just went to the moved temp folder. also tried running it as an admin as well. Still getting the fatal error message.
don't delete temp folder. it just crashed with your NVIDIA thingy. you just need to run the maya with your intergrated graphics. it worked for me.
Fatal errors are usually a result of conflicting/underpowered graphics card. In this case, considering you are looking at a particular path, I am wondering if you have your Antivirus turned on or have a corrupt installation.
Turn off AV
Update your graphics card drivers
Uninstall + reinstall
