    do a manual install by copying the AdvancedSkeleton folder into this directory : /Users/pick_your_username/Library/Preferences/Autodesk/maya/pick_your_maya_version/prefs/scripts To get the PoseDesigner and Selector to work more correctly, showing the images and save and load poses on maya 2011 or newer on the mac, the AdvancedSkeleton 3.7 scripts need to be patched. The icon image location is used by the scripts to find the associated data files.. so if the icon location is broken, the whole thing won't work and you get a negative index $tempString error. The patch is to fix the way it chooses image file extensions.. there is logic that checks maya version number and THEN if it is running on a mac. These IF statements need to be in the OPPOSITE order, meaning check if mac, and then check if maya 2011 or newer: Do a multi-file search of the AdvancedSkeleton scripts & subdirectories with something like TextWrangler for "iff" to find this bug in several locations in the AdvancedSkeleton scripts. change the logic by cutting the 2 lines of "if (about -mac) ..." and pasting it before the if (>=2011). Because for may 2011 and newer (regardless of the platform) .PNG is the correct file format to use for both the icons and the 32bit BGicons. Hopefully this is fixed in future versions beyond 3.7

    Hi, Could you give me some detailed step by step instructions, which show me how to install Advanced Skeleton please. I new to Mac and Autodesk Maya, and I am working with Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Autodesk Maya 2011 student version. I have read the post above, but I need a more clarification and details. Thank you for your valuable time, and have a great day. Regards, Swamp_Gator

    Can you tell should I have to install this software with a VPN connection or not? If yes then only I will make a purchase of Atlas VPN using Atlas VPN Discount offer code, otherwise not. I only want to download the file safely, so suggest me right, Is it safe to download your file?
