How do I fix the error "The renderer "arnold" used by this scene, is not currently available." ?

When I start Maya, I get this warning:

// Warning: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2018/scripts/others/supportRenderers.mel line 64: The renderer "arnold" used by this scene, is not currently available. The "mayaSoftware" renderer will be used instead.

This warning:

// Warning: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2018/scripts/others/supportRenderers.mel line 64: The renderer "arnold" used by this scene, is not currently available. The "mayaSoftware" renderer will be used instead.

means that the MtoA plugin is not loaded.

  1. Click Windows > Settings/Preferences > Plug-in Manager
  2. Scroll down until you see mtoa.mll
  3. Click the Loaded and Auto load check boxes

This is a FAQ, so I'm answering my own question.
