I have been trying to install Maya LT free trial but ran into a couple of errors:
1) Trying the 'Install Now' option gives me communication failure, though there is nothing to interrupt it.
2) The alternative of Download Now (I don't have Browser Download option) installs the download manager successfully but stops there (download manager doesn't have any active or pending downloads). Tried to re-install it twice more but nothing so far. If you need the logs, let me know.
My comp specs far exceed the basic requirements so there are no problems there.
I also installed the latest version of Java (found some link mentioning it).
