Maya 2009 trial version ERROR

Hello. I just installed Maya 2009 trial version on my computer. When I clicked the shortcut to run Maya, I got the following message:

What have I done wrong? Thanks in advance if anyone knows,


I just did some research and found that the CPU on my computer is an Athlon XP 3200, whereas Autodesk’s page says an Athlon 64 is needed. So that might have something to do with it (although unless there’s some kind of planned obsoletion going on I can’t see a good reason for needing a better processor, since I can run the previous version of Maya PLE and the latest Blender 3D just fine.)

If anyone has any insight to the situation I’m open to it.

Which OS are you running?


Thanks. Richard Marklew. I kinda figured that was the problem.
