The overall workflow:

  1. Download and install the tools, try it out.
  2. Sign up in for free, and subscribe using PayPal.
  3. MGLAND sets up the license record and emails the notification.
  4. Download the MG-LicenceConnector from the same link above.
  5. Connect MG-Picker Studio to the floating license and enjoy it.

So here is how to do step 5 (Different MGPicker version might has a slight difference in UI but overall the same):

The green dot at the top-right corner means your MG-Picker Studio is registered, either node-locked or floating license, while a red dot means it is not registered.


  1. The first time you click "Login", it will pop up browse dialog so you can pick the executable, going to "Preference" dialog is another way.
  2. The path to MG-LicenceConnector executable to pick up is different in the different operating systems. 
    - In Windows it is MG-LicenceConnector.exe
    - In MacOSX it is
    - In Linux it is MG-LicenceConnector
  3. You only need to pick up the executable once, if you quite Maya normally, next time it will know where to launch the connector.
  4. If you check on the "Remember Me" option in the connector, you don't need to input the password the next time.
  5. If you launch the connector manually and log in, in MG-Picker Studio you need to select the login menu again to let it know.

If you are using Catalina or later version of MacOSX, and unable to launch the MG-LicenceConnector app, please check out HERE or HERE.

If MG-PickerStudio still in unregistered license state but you have logged in license connector already, and you have tried the steps above, here are extra things to check:

  • Make sure in license connector you logged in MG-Picker Studio instead of other products, e.g. MGTools.
  • Make sure you are not using a very old license connector.
  • Try to select "Product"/"Quit" menu to quit the license connector completely and reopen it, then try again.
  • Make sure the connector is not in the block list of anti-virus software.
