solving problem " runtime error "

it happens because of the way you installed it , so after you downloaded the file then extracted it ,then u should open 3dsmax as administrator , from maxscript run the extracted file "advpainter_1.6.0.mzp" .
wrong installation , when you drag and drop the files to max .

I am also on 3ds Max Design

I am also on 3ds Max Design 2013 x64 and I cannot seem to install the script properly. I keep getting an error when trying to open the script: "-Unknown property: 'open' in undefined"

I have made a UI folder in the 2013 folder on the C drive, and also tried logging in as admin. These have not worked.

Any ideas of what I am doing incorrectly?
