When trying to load the temp license for the july challenge, I can’t seem to connect to the license server and get a “request lease” / “continue” pop up window, exactly like V4NDL0 had a few days ago; if I press continue, all the markers disappear, if I press request lease, I have the connection error
I followed the installation guide (downloaded and launched the MSI, opened a maya, launched the july competition script), and I do have internet. Any clues as to why it doesn’t work?
Hm, that’s odd. Can you try running this?
print("You've got internet")
print("Maya can't reach the internet")
It should tell you whether Maya can connect to the internet, or not.
Just tried, it returned me the following error:
# Error: error: file E:\Programmes\Maya\Maya2020\Maya2020\bin\python27.zip\socket.py line 575: 10013 #
I’m trying on maya 2020.1, if that can help!
Not the error I was expecting, but an error nonetheless. It looks like Maya can’t communicate with the internet. Likely suspects are anti-virus software or any kind of firewall. Do you have access to a different machine you can try this on?
Quick google on that error code reveals this.
Hey! After following your anti-virus and firewall leads, reading the stackoverflow link and a few head scratches, I remembered I set a special rule to block maya in my firewall’s advanced settings a while ago. Removing this rule has made the license work!
Thanks for your help!
