I Just upgraded to MentalRay 5.0.1, and mentalray worked fine.. However as soon as i restarted (I think this is when it stopped), mentalray stopped loading. So I checked the plug-in manager and told it to load mentalray, and it gave me this: // mental ray for Maya 5 // Warning: mental ray for Maya: couldn't find maya.rayrc in search path, trying old-style startup file // // Error: mental ray for Maya: couldn't find startup file // // Error: (Mayatomr) : startup command execution failed // // Error: initializePlugin function failed (Mayatomr) // Did i mess something up? I'll try reinstalling a little later, I'm at a LAN Party (go ahead n say it, i'm a nerd haha), so I don't have my CD's with me. I'm pretty sure it was because of the 5.0.1 patch, though. Oh, and I can't seem to render with the software renderer either. The batch render sits at 0% the whole time, but that could be something wrong with my scene file for it would crash earlier if I tried. Oh and I'm sorry if this was posted in a previous thread (the fix), but I searched and couldn't find one.
