General Editors > Script Editors. Source Script.

Find your GI_Joe srcipt file.

On line 57 of the GI_Joe script, (Open in notepad) change the address to the folder address of the script.

The GI_Joe box should apear when you type GI_Joe in the comand line.

use \ slashes bud. / is for the internet. \ is for files.

You want to actualy open the .lights, not the .mel
It should read:

string $pathL = "C:\\Documents and Settings\\YOUR-LOG-IN\\My Documents\\maya\\scripts\\GIJoe.lights";
