Maya Won't Open (Leopard)

Every time I try to open Maya, it runs the product license wizard, and each time, I provide the license file, which is accepted and it says "installation complete". However, I must repeat this process every time I try to open Maya. I haven't been able to run it once since buying it.

Any advice?

Thanks

care to elaborate what was the solution? You know, for the future people who may run into what you ran into... Always gotta do if for the greater good.

It would be nice if you can share with us how you solved the problem. I just installed Maya 2008 and it will "unexpectedly quit" when trying to start the program. Your solution might help me...or others.

TIA
