    What's the command on your button? It should be icPolyScatter as mentioned before.

    Have you actually read the installation instructions? Just copy the script to any script directory that is accessed via maya. Run the script by executing “icPolyScatter” (without quotes) in the script editor. You may as well build a shelf button for easy access. - OneDrive/Documents/Maya/2016 is not a script directory of Maya unless you set your env to this path. - the Program Folder is also not recommended to use as the place to put custom scripts - nothing says that you should open the script in the script editor and save it as a shelf button If you put the file in your user prefs of Maya i.e. /Users/.../Documents/Maya/2016/scripts, start Maya and run the command icPolyScatter; you will then get your window.

    This is the path I installed the script to: https://www.dropbox.com/s/58jm8n72riq80aj/Screenshot%202016-06-26%2010.38.25.png?dl=0 Just in case, I also installed it to the program path: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kn95ra0e2xxmldf/Screenshot%202016-06-26%2010.39.26.png?dl=0 I then load the script into the script editor: https://www.dropbox.com/s/x518puxub1b7y79/Screenshot%202016-06-26%2010.40.12.png?dl=0 And this is what it looks like in the editor: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ij4xpq3q0b8uqop/Screenshot%202016-06-26%2010.40.56.png?dl=0 I saved it to the shelf and then click it, nothing happens and nothing shows up.

    Well it only shows up when I try to run your script. In fact the window doesnt open at all, nothing happens. I can show you a video if that will help.

    This is no error message related to the script.
