Hi there ,not sure why that is,but lets see if we can work somehting out,

do you have an online connection working on that machine?
which maya version are you running?

is your scripts directory located other then the usual maya standards..
you have to give me more details if you need help :S

1.Yes, i have an online connection both on my computer at work and at home.
2.I'm using maya 2012x64
3.Normally my MAYA_APP_DIR is located in custom location, but i also tried to reset maya to its defaults and then install shader monger. The same problem...

ok , under the SHADERMONGER direcotry which should be :


you should have the following files, please check that this file is not blocked on the firewall or antivirus( dont worry its not...)


also please see if you ahve these files under that dir

if nothing else works, try dragging the ShaderMon.mel file found under:

to your scripts panel and running it mannually . if it halts it might throw and error before it freezes . screen capture that and send it to my mail @

hope this helps , let me know how it goes...

At work shadermonger doesn't work, maya freezes when i lunch shadermonger. Maya preferences on work machine are the same as on my home machine, they are synchronized by GoogleDrive. Both machines have Windows 7x64...

does the google drive directory resides under the USER in DOCUMENTS?
if i recall , g-drive have caused me some issues with accessing these types of directories.
its a windows issue.

try loading the shadermonger app from a local "C:/anything/" project directory.
that way we can narrow down some options.
