Dears,

 

I am having a strange problem in running Maya.

 

License was installed correctly

Deployment was created also but when we run Maya from the clients it refuses to obtain a license and the error is below:

 

---------------------------

 

---------------------------

License was not obtained

Tried Maya 2012 (657D1 2012.0.0.F), error 20

 

License method:

environment variable MAYA_LICENSE_METHOD='network'

 

Product choice:

environment variable MAYA_LICENSE='unlimited'

 

License file override:

environment variable MAYA_ALT_EN is not set

---------------------------

Look for the C:\flexlm\maya.lic file.  Edit the file using Notepad and edit the license file as necessary.  Typically, it will look like:

 

SERVER servername 0

USE_SERVER

 

Alternate file can be:

 

SERVER ip-address-of-server 0
USE_SERVER

I have the exact same problem and I get the exact same message. I have tried to uninstall and reinstalled, but failed. I have even tried to install Maya 2011, but I still get the same error. 

 

Interesting note: I have the same product key as you for Maya 2012, 657D1. I think MAYBE Autodesk is sending out corrupt product trials for students and that's why these installs aren't working. 

 

P.S. I tried to install AutoCad for Mac and I got the same error, it won't boot up. My product key is 777D1. Would you by any chance be having the same problem?

I am running Maya 2012 Hotfix 4 on Mac OS X 10.6.8.

I am having a similar problem, but with a standalone licesnse for Maya Unlimited.

 

License was not obtained

Tried Maya 2012 (657D1 2012.0.0.F), error 20

 

License method:

environment variable MAYA_LICENSE_METHOD='standalone'

 

Product choice:

environment variable MAYA_LICENSE='unlimited'

 

License file override:

environment variable MAYA_ALT_EN is not set

 


Maya used to work fine, but this problem suddenly began happening. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
