What would be the best way to distribute and install a custom menu containing scripts to my colleagues?
show user profile  jpedleham
I have a small suite of scripts and tools i have developed for use at my workplace and i would like to easily distribute these scripts to my colleagues in a simple way that will build a menu and add the scripts to the menu etc but i have never done this before. can anyone offer any advice or point me to some form of tutorial?
Thanks
Jack

Hey Jack, did this not work for you ? I don't write scripts so can't help with any code.

Alternatively you could use Scriptrun, plop all your scripts in a folder and have quick access to them.

Hi FX, no it didnt seem to work properly. It got the scripts in initially but despite saving the UI the mzp had to be rerun every time they loaded max for some reason they just didnt stay there.

Look for .mzp files in the doc. I've used them a couple of times to simplify installation.
Here is an example that installs a shortcut in a quadmenu:http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/loop-regularizer
Change the file extension to .zip and unzip it. This should give you a starting point.

The scriptrun thing FX posted seems to do what it does really well so i think ill just get them to put that in their startup scripts folder and add the path to the scrips folder i have.
Thanks for the help guys

Yeah I'm lost without it, keeps things organised.

You may have already seen it , but Klauss has another script installer that does what your asking, but it's only for single scripts..maybe can be modified ?
