runtime error - can't open file bitmapresizesaver.mse

I get this error message everytime I open a file in max2009. Pretty annoying. I didn't find a proper way to uninstall this thing, it doesn't have an uninstaller. I tried to delete the scripts manually and I still get this error. :(

*edit*, found how to uninstall it. Just open the mzp file like a zip file and then delete all the corresponding files that are in the mzp file in your "C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsmax\2009 - 64bit\enu " directory.

The path is important. Max

The path is important.

Max 2010 does not work correctly with files and folders that contain non-unicode characters.

the path to the texture file

the path to the texture file doesn't matter, I just tried it with a simple path like "C:\test\", but it doesn't work except when using relative paths which I just figured out...

/Update: When I activate

/Update: When I activate "convert local files paths to relative" in the max preferences, the correct named files PLUS the "messed up" alphanumeric named textures appear in the maps folder.

Hi
It looks very very strange.
Please tell me the full path to the texture file before copying and after.

Cryptic Texture File Names

When copying and pasting a scene material to a material library, the automacially copied texture file names (originally "filename.png") in the "maps" folder are messed up and look like this: {B99BDD98-C379-4575-897F-18663DC6F832}

I use Windows 7 64 bit and Max 2010 with the demo version of your script. Any ideas how to fix this? When I use the "Copy to" function in the asset files mode before by copying the files to the exact maps folder before and delete the textures and redo the copy/paste progress, the file names stay correct.
