I was using a trial version of Maya. Then when I tried to upgrade and set a licensed version, I got a few problems. I want to use Maya, strictly for educational matters. How do I license my copy of the software?

The problem with your task is you need to register the software in your system’s registry. The environment variable is then set for the software after successful registration. You have following two options for to do so.

  1. Find a setup registry file in the root folder of the Maya Software. Open this file, then click yes in the succeeding dialogue box. This will automatically register your environment variable with the licensed copy of the software.
  2. Also, your .env file must have been corrupted, and you need to delete it from all probable locations in C drive that are related to the Maya Software.

The full error reads:

[License was not obtained
Tried Maya 2014 (657E1 2013.0.0.F), error 20
License method:
environment variable MAYA_LICENSE_METHOD=’standalone’
Product choice:
environment variable MAYA_LICENSE=’unlimited’
License file override:
environment variable MAYA_ALT_EN is not set]

If you have a different version, your version will appear instead of “Maya 2014 …” According to Autodesk, the possible cause of this error is corruption in the license information and most of the time it happens if you are using OS X. To fix the problem, you need to uninstall Maya and re-initialize the license information file.

To uninstall Maya in OS X, navigate to its default directory: “Applications/Autodesk/Maya2014” and then trash Maya 2014. What I mean by trash is drag the Maya 2014 application to the trash. Next, to re-initialize the license information, open a Terminal window and enter the following commands:

  • adlmreg –u S <productKey> 2014.0.0.F
  • adlmreg –u N <productKey> 2014.0.0.F

Replace “<productKey>” with your product key. This makes sure that the product information is properly removed from the “ProductInformation.pit” file. After this, reactivate Maya.
