I'm getting this error when I open up Maya-

# Error: No module named UnwrellaUI

Any ideas?

The error occurs when Maya can not find the script for the user interface.

Which version of Maya are you using? I assume you're using Maya 8.5 because in that version Maya will not use the paths specified in the modules directory for Python scripts. There should be a copy of the script in the user account's Maya script directory but if you installed the plug-in with a different user account than the one you are using now Maya 8.5 will not find the script on its own.

To fix this you need to make sure that your PYTHONPATH environment variable points to a directory that contains the file 'UnwrellaUI.py'. You can find this file in a script subdirectory of the directory where you installed the plug-in and in the user scripts directory of the account under which the plug-in was installed. You can either add one of those directories to your PYTHONPATH or copy the script into another directory where Maya checks for scripts.

If you need further information about the PYTHONPATH environment variable you can check the chapter 'Python in Maya' in your Maya help.
