Maya & Renderman problem


I’m hoping that I will find some assistance on this forum in resolving a problem with RM.

Four days ago I purchased a new PC with Win 10. My previous PC was with 8.1. After installing Maya 2019 I proceeded to install RM. The problem I’m facing is that when I try to load the preferences for RM the following message appears:

“Locate RenderManProServer 24 directory”.

I have no such directory on my system. I have posted my question on the Renderman forum a week ago but nobody has replied to date and I’ve run out of options. I have no idea what the problem is or how to fix it.

If anybody has had the same issue or can lead me to a solution I would really appreciate hearing from you.

Thank you.


the directory might look something like:
C:\Program Files\Pixar\RenderManProServer-22.2\bin
