Maya closes by itself when I open Arnold's render view.

Maya closes by itself when I open Arnold's render view. I'm using Maya 2024.2 and when I open the render view the entire program closes, what do I do?

Similar stuff was happening to me repeatedly; render view locking up, crashing, etc. I updated to the latest Arnold, but that only worked for a while. I had to go back to 2023 to get the problem to stop. What is your operating system?

Delete Maya preferences and relaunch Maya. If it doesn't solve the problem, then update the drivers of your graphic card.

Reset Maya preferences and update to the latest Arnold version.

You already have support from Autodesk in your previous post, you should reply there.

I was asking about your OS because I am on a Mac and I think my issue is with 2024 and OS 14.x.x. That may or not be the case with me, but the problem did go away when I switched back to 2023. Just sayin. 

As for the preferences, resetting preferences is a fairly standard procedure and seems to be the go-to when all else fails. It involves renaming your existing prefs file and re launching Maya, it will look for a file named prefs and when it doesn't find one it makes a new one. That's what Damaggio was talking about. It's kind of a pain in the butt, but it often works.

Go to my Documents/Maya/Prefs and delete the prefs folder. 

Relaunch Maya with a new workspace.
