HDR Light Studio problem - no live update in Maya

Hello everyone!

I've got a problem with HDR Light Studio 4.1Win64 and the Maya v0.38 plugins.
I guess I copied all the files to the appropriate folders. Tried it with Maya 2012 and 2013.

I prepare a Maya scene with a cube and a camera and from the render settings' Indirect Lighting tab I create an IBL node.
When I click the LIVE button in the HDRLS shelf, the little HDR Light Studio start window shows up. It correctly finds Mental Ray as my host renderer and in the 'Environment Hooks' popup my mentalrayIblShape1 is selected.
When I click 'Start Live' the HDR Light Studio Live window pops up, too. So far so good.

But as I understand it, with every modification you make, Live is supposed to plug a little temp HDR file into the IBL node, visible in the IBL Attributes' Image Name field. As far as I read, it stores the temp files in Windows' system temp folder.

In my case, however, Live doesn't plug any temp files, nor does it plug the Production HDR file into the IBL node, when I render one. And I don't find any temp files in Windows' system temp folder. There seems to be no live update happening at all.

Any idea what's going wrong here? Have I missed something? Help much appreciated!
