The variables set in the operating system take priority over any settings in the Maya.env file. However, when Maya verifies
the environment settings, it may add default settings.
- On Linux, you can use setenv to set environment variables. You can add commands to your .cshrc file to make sure the environment variables are always available.
setenv MAYA_SCRIPT_PATH /remote/scriptDisk/scriptFiles/
- On the Maya command line, you can use the MEL command putenv to set environment variables.
putenv "MAYA_SCRIPT_PATH" "/remote/scriptDisk/scriptFiles/";
- On Windows, right-click My Computer and choose Properties (or double-click System in the control panel), then click the Advanced
tab, and click Environment Variables.
- On Mac OS X, you can set environment variables in a shell as described above in the Linux section. However, those variables
will only be available if you run Maya from the shell. If you run Maya from the Dock, it will not use any of the environment
variables from your shell. Therefore, on Mac OS X, it is strongly suggested that you place your environment variable settings
in a Maya.env file.
