Pipeline toolkit question

Hello, Is there a way to add the pipeline toolkit to Maya without launching from the web interface? If I open Maya normally (from the start menu, task bar, desktop shortcut) the "Shotgun" menu at the top does not appear. So far the only way I've been able to get it is by right-clicking a task from the web page and launching Maya from there. Is there a command I can run when Maya opens that will add the Shotgun tab to the menu bar?

    Hi Ryan,
    I tried running the "tank launch_maya" command in one of our project directories and got this output:
    [code]

    Welcome to the Shotgun Pipeline Toolkit!
    For documentation, see https://toolkit.shotgunsoftware.com
    Starting Toolkit for your current directory
    'P:\shotgun\software\shotgun\test_project'
    - Using configuration 'Primary' and Core v0.14.33
    - Setting the Context to Empty Context.


    ERROR: The action 'launch_maya' could not be found!

    In order to list all action that are available, try running the same command,
    but omit the 'launch_maya' part at the end.

    [/code]

    I tried running "tank /help" and there were no commands that had anything to do with launching programs. Is it possible that I'm using an old version of the toolkit that doesn't have that command?

    Hi Topher.

    You can also launch Maya from the command line with the 'tank' command in your project's pipeline configuration.  The 'tank' command can be fed parameters like 'launch_maya', 'launch_nuke', and so forth:

    > tank launch_maya

    This will launch Maya with the context of your current directory.  You can also feed the 'tank' command a context that will be used when launching Maya, which is the equivalent to launching Maya from that entity in Shotgun, ex.:

    > tank Shot AA0010 launch_maya

    Hope this helps!

    Ryan.

    Hi Topher.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear.  In this case, Toolkit doesn't realize you're in a Project yet, because you aren't in your primary storage area.  Try running this instead:

    > tank Project test_project launch_maya

    Ryan.
