Thank you !

License was not obtained

Tried Maya 2014 (65F 2014.0.0.F), error 41

License method:

Environment variable MAYA_LICENSE_METHOD=’standalone’

Product choice:

Environment variable MAYA_LICENSE=’657f’

License file override: environment variable MAYA_ALT_EN is not set

License file override environment variable MAYA_ALT_EN


The most likely cause of the "environment variable MAYA_ALT_EN is not set" error you're experiencing is that there is a corrupt file called "Maya.env" in your Maya 2014 installation. To fix this problem, do the following steps:

1. Navigate to all of the following locations in turn and delete "Maya.env" wherever you find it:

C:Documents and SettingsusernameMy Documentsmayaversion

C:Documents and SettingsusernameMy Documentsmaya

C:UsersusernameMy Documentsmayaversion

C:UsersusernameMy Documentsmaya

2. Reinstall the latest version of Maya 2014.

3. Restart your computer.

Now Maya 2014 will start and function properly
