Autodesk Maya 3D is the animation software engine behind such popular movies as "Shrek" and "Kung Fu Panda" as well as video games like "Resistance 2." Many people use a special program to generate a Flexlm license for their copy of Maya 8.0. The installation process is quite different from normal cracks. To install a crack Flexlm license for Maya 8.0, the user needs to generate an Ethernet address-specific version of the "Aw.dat" file.

Things you need

Download the Maya 8, 8.5 keygen torrent to your computer with a torrent downloading program like Utorrent, Vuze, or Ares (see Resources).
Create a new folder in the root directory of your main hard drive. In most cases this is the "C:" drive. Name the new folder "FLEXLM," in upper case without the quotes.
Double-click on the downloaded keygen file and drag the "awkeygen.exe" and "aw.dat" files to the root hard drive folder. Most users will drag the files to the "C:\" directory.
Click "Start," "All Programs," "Autodesk," "Common Utilities." Launch the "FlexLM license utility."
Click the "Windows" key + "r" or choose run from the "Start" menu and type "cmd" without the quotes to open the command prompt.
Type "getmac /v" without the quotes to get your Ethernet address, also known as a Mac ID.
Click the "System Settings" tab in the "FlexLM license utility" and copy the Ethernet address shown in the command prompt window.
Right-click on the "aw.dat" file in the root folder of the main hard drive. Choose "Open with" and "Notepad." Replace the text "your_host" with the Ethernet address displayed in the command prompt window. Choose "Save" from the "File" menu and close Notepad.
Type "cd;\" without the quotes in the command prompt window to change to the root directory.
Type "awkeygen.exe aw.dat" and press "ENTER."
Close all of the open windows. Open the root directory of the main hard drive in the Explorer window, in most cases "C:\," and drag the "aw.dat" file to the "C:\FLEXLM" folder.
Launch Maya from the "Start" menu or desktop icon.
