We recently got an issue with Maya 2014 on Mac + 10.9 [Mavericks]. You will get an Error 110 when activating it. In fact, you will not even be able to manually activate the sofware. The solution is noted below
1. Delete Maya 2014:
2. Download and install Maya 2014 SP3.
What made this issue interesting was that we tried using Maya 2014 & Maya 2014 SP2 for Mac and it had the same error. This only was resolved by installing Maya 2014 SP3!
We just received confirmation from the Development Team that Maya 2014 SP3 has some updates to the licensing libraries that fixes the Error 110.
Thanks to Andrew M. for confirming that this solved the problem.
