    Apparently it doesn't work on Mac Maya 2017. Unfortunately it cost me $20. to find out. Hopefully this will help others with the same question.

    Hey, sorry for the very late reply but I never got a notification about the post and only noticed it yesterday.
     
    The script worked for me on a Mac the same as it does on Windows so I don't think that's the problem.
     
    From what I can tell by looking at it, your problem is just from the way the script works on a mesh that is dense or when the selection is much wider in one direction as the one in your example is.
    This is because it is only the outer edge of a face selection that gets changed, which in some cases causes the edge to overlap with the inside faces and gives a bad result like this.
     
    There are a couple ways to fix this. The easiest way is to just delete the inside faces and use the left over border edge.
    If you must have the inside faces though, you can scale them either before or after running the script, however this may not help much if the circle is being made on curved geometry as it will affect the curvature. Scale the faces that are inside the edge you want to make a circle, the actual circle edge should not be scaled. Then using shift + >, grow your selection to include the circle edge and run the script. Alternativley you can run the script and then shrink your selection with shift + < and scale the inside faces that way.
     
    Sorry again for the late reply but I hope this helps and that you can finally get some use out of the script.
