Q100394: Mari 4.0 crashes when clicking "Launch" on the temporary license warning window


When launching Mari 4.0v1, 4.0v2 or 4.0v3 on Windows and running off a temporary license with less than 15 days left, you will get a warning message stating that you have X amount of days remaining on the license. When you then click on "Launch" to run Mari it will crash.



There are several workarounds to this bug:

Launch Mari in Verbose Mode:
You can launch Mari in Verbose Mode by using the following shortcut:

Start > All Programs > The Foundry > Mari 4.0v1 > Mari 4.0v1 (Verbose Output)

Launch Mari from a Command Prompt:
You can launch Mari from a Command Prompt by running the following command:

C:\Program Files\Mari4.0v3\Bundle\bin\Mari4.0v3.exe

Modifying the default Mari shortcut:
By modifying the Run behaviour of the Mari shortcut, you can avoid the crash:

Right Click on Shortcut > Properties > Run > set 'Normal Window'

Set an environment variable to disable the license expiry warning:
You can prevent Mari (and other Foundry programs) from warning you that a license is due to expire soon by setting the following environment variable


Instructions on how to set an environment variable are available in the following article: Q100015: How To Set Environment Variables
