I recently got a new computer and put the old hard drive I was using in it. Maya did not like this and I had to uninstall.
I could not find an uninstaller, so I removed every file or folder that had 'Autodesk' in it from my computer.
Trying to install it, it now fails at writing files in Maya Core. It's not very verbose about it, so I can't fix it at all.
"Maya Setup encountered errors installing the following software"
"The Installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Installer failed on Exit"
are all it says.
NOTE: This will only apply to Maya 2010/2011/2012.
1. Remove the Autodesk folder in Applications.
2. Delete the following files and folders:
3. Reinstall Maya. If the Maya Core doesn't install, then try this:
Well, that installed it but starting it now gives me the error:
License was not obtained
environment variable MAYA_LICENSE_METHOD='network'
environment variable MAYA_LICENSE='unlimited'
License file override:
environment variable MAYA_ALT_EN is not set
Can I have a reply please? I kinda need this program.
Okay, I reinstalled it and it now runs. I get to the product license activation page and I need to "repair" my license.
Whenever I try to activate it, it says "another serial '00000000' was found on your computer and will now be used' after which it says that license is invalid and it starts all over again.
That first link leads to a domain parking site and the second only lists 2 NVidia graphics cards for Mac OS-X.
I have had it running succesfully on a 9400M, and I can assure you my current 320M is a lot more powerful.
It's not stuttering (lag) by the way, so it's probably not the graphics card.
I tried to reinstall my maya 2010, but Maya core didn't install. I already deleted the folders and tried everything that is listed in this thread, but didn't work for me. The only thing it'll show up is installation failed on exit. Any idea how I can fix this?
If you are running a newer operating system, the core will not install.
I reformatted my computer, but it was still OS X 10.6.8, which should be ok. Is there any other stuff that I can check to solve the installation issue? Thanks!
