Question Errrr....

Not sure what you mean there.
Are you on a Mac? Where would that folder be then? On the HD>Applications>Alias>...
Or on the User>documents>maya>default>...?

I downloaded the 2nd update, but not the first, guess I don't need #1 if there's a #2 huh ?

Are many of you on Mac or are you all just PC guys?

i'm on a window and here i put them on
C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\maya\7.0\scripts So probably, if there's a counter part of a main document folder somewhere in ur hd, there's also a folder that maya put in when u installed it. go in that folder, find the folder with the version no., go to scripts, paste that mel file and wala! Restart maya if u have it open, if not open it, open the writer thingy (where u write mel scripts) and then write the keywrods for that script(there is something like this that the programmer of the mel usually puts, it's a kleyphrade usually almost identical to the name of the script)onece it is written, drag it with your middle mouse button to the menus and a new menu will come out or in the shelf if it's a button. ask if u don't totally get me lol.
