Maya Issue on PC

Maya was working fine, for some strange reason when I star the program I get this message:

Maya Fatal Error. Attempting to save in


I had removed and installed again Maya and the problem still present, please any advise?

Calling Tech Support takes forever!

Id HIGHLY reccomend a virus scan typicly a fatal error refers to some 3rd party interference with you computer in this case maya.
I may be wrong but it couldn't hurt to check. Also make sure that your computer meets all the system requirements that maya holds.
Good Luck

it does that if you dont save your scene.

it says its attempting to save your scene in the TEMP folder but can't... i get this error all the time.... until i save.


ps. you can move the window and keep modeling and saving if it comes up, lol

for me it turned out to be the gfx card
