Revision history [back]
Maya 2020 uses an old version of OpenSSL that leads to crashing on 10th (Ice Lake), 11th (Rocket Lake) or 12th (Alder Lake) generation Intel CPUs. The problem occurs when
import wingdbstub is reached, crashing Maya completely.
There are two ways to work around this problem:
1) Make sure you have Wing 8.3.2 or later. Then uncheck the
Debugger > Network > Use Digests to Identify Files preference in Wing. This turns off a part of Wing's debugger implementation that calls
hashlib, and thus
avoids the crash.
2) Set Windows system environment variable
OPENSSL_ia32cap to the value
~0x20000000 before starting Maya. This disables the OpenSSL feature that is leading to the crash.
