Issue:

When installing Maya on macOS, the following message is displayed:

Installation Failed

Errors Occured During Installation

Causes:

Residual files left over from previous Maya installation causing new installation to fail.

Solution:

Close the installer and check in your Applications folder to see if Maya actually installed successfully.

  1. Try launching Maya by double clicking on the Maya icon located here: /Applications/Autodesk/Maya 201x
  2. Next, If there is a no Maya icon present or Maya does not launch correctly, perform a clean uninstall of ALL Autodesk products from the computer using the following steps:
    1. Delete /Applications/Autodesk folder
    2. Delete /Library/Application Support/Autodesk folder.
    3. Open /var/db/receipts/ folder and delete all files that start with com.autodesk, com.Autodesk and com.alias
    4. Delete /Library/Autodesk
    5. Navigate to the folder /Library/Preferences/Flexnet Publisher/FLEXnet and delete the files prefixed with adskflex.
    6. Delete the folder /Users/Username/Library/Application Support/Autodesk
    7. Delete the ~/Library/Autodesk folder

Retry the Maya installation. If it fails after performing the above steps, create in a new local admin user profile and re-install
