•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• VERSION 1.5
•••ScriptRun is a free maxscript tool that allow you to easy search through your script collections inside different directories, run selected script, open in the MaxScriptEditor if you need to make some changes or make the favorites list for latter use.
Also there is a quickRun method for the "Last Used Script"

Additional Info: 

•••Supported script extensions are:
*.ms - maxscript
*.mse - encrypted script
*.mcr - macroscript
You can place file in maxroot>scripts>startup folder
(for automatic startup with 3ds Max) or maxroot>scripts to run manually.
The all settings and screen location are saved upon closing (to XML file)
so the next time it is opened, the script form appears on the
same spot and restore all parameters back.
written and tested on 3dsMax 2013 x64 and 3dsMax 2012 x64, but it may work in older version.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Update: [version 1.1]

If you not need this option then use version 1.0

Do you mean instead of thie *.ms to use this:`.ms?

The * is used by regEx and you can't replace it directly with any other sign. You have to edit the script so when you enter `.ms the script to converts it to *.ms.

Barigazy will solve the problem but to make the process easy, please post what is printed in the maxscript listener when the error occrus.
Also, you can check the dotnet versions in your PC and in oter PCs where the script works.

Hi Barigazy, i´m having a problem using this script, i get this error when running the script -
I´m using max 2019. The funny thing is that at the office the script works (win 7), the problem is in my home office (win 10). But i tried the script in other win 10 and it worked also.
Thanks man,

I meant that the fp_0-path should be $UserScripts, not the path to the XML :)
The other path, ie fp_1, fp_2 etc can be added manually anyway.

Reason is that I sync my scripts and the XML files through Dropbox and dropbox is located in different path in different computer and it ends up with an error, because the XML saves absolut path.

Kind regards
