Hi James,

There is an easy solution to this problem that you are facing which can be implemented in the following steps:

1) Download The Maya 2013 Extension.

2) Extract it to a location of your choice.

3) You will find the folder by the name "Maya2013.5" in the extracted directory. For example if you extracted it to the location,

    C:AutodeskMaya_2013_Extension_CEJ_Win_64-bitx64MayaProgram FilesAutodeskMaya2013.5 

4) You will need to rename the folder “Maya2013.5” to “Maya2013”. So that it now appears as,

     C:AutodeskMaya_2013_Extension_CEJ_Win_64-bitx64MayaProgram FilesAutodeskMaya2013

 

5) After you have renamed the file, create deployment and this time you should not receive any error and the installation should proceed as expected.

Hope this helps.
