Angry Crash

I started Maya 6.5 Unlimited on my Windows XP SP2 box today and it crashed while at the splash screen.

With its last breath, Maya gave me this error message in a dialog:

Fatal Error: Attempting to save in C/: Docume~/User/Local~1/Temp/User.20080917.1608.ma



I think this is the temp file for the default scene. It was created properly - it was present at the given location, it could be read by Notepad and I checked my hard drive twice for corruption and bad sectors, nothing wrong.

I deleted the Maya settings, tried again, didn't work, reinstalled Maya twice, tried again, didn't work. I also tested my computer's memory, nothing wrong.

XP Pro's logs didn't give much indication as to what happened. I also reset my graphics drivers settings, but that didn't help.

I haven't changed any hardware and the installed software is the same as it always was. What could be causing this?

I really hope I don't have to reinstall Windows! :headbang:

I had that problem, cant for the life of me remember what I did to fix it though.

I think it was a reinstall and made sure that I deleted all my prefs and anything that was hanging over from the uninstall too but I cant remember though!

Hmm... I don't think I deleted every trace of the previous install when I reinstalled... I'll try that, thanks.
