    Sure, just open the py file in note pad or some other plain text editor, select all, copy, paste in a python tab in Maya. That's about it

    Thank You for your quick reply sir. But am I suppose to copy-paste ALL the words in this file after opening it in the Notepad..? Cause I see some options like, If I want to only select the unknown nodes or IF I want to Delete the nodes etc. So I am confused.. Do I need to copy and paste only some particular texts in it to Delete the unknown nodes..?

    By default, the script as is prints a list of the offending nodes to the script editor, selects them, then deletes them. Which is usually what you want to do. However if you''re trouble shooting a scene and dont want to necessarily delete those nodes, put a "#"pound sign in front of the last line, number 3.
