Drag-n-drop mzp install for 3ds Max is not working

If you are experiencing problems and notice the tool is not installing when you drag-n-drop the mzp files into 3ds Max, here is an alternate way to install those plugins.

  1. Unzip the purchased file downloaded from This file will have a file extension of .zip 
  2. Once this file is unzipped, it will contain another file which has the file extension of .mzp. For those unfamiliar with this file format, a mzp file is the same as a zip file. Once the mzp file is located, simply unzip the file.
  3. Once the mzp is unzipped, you should see a few files. Take all the files which and place them into your 3ds Max > Scripts > Startup folder. Then restart 3ds max and you should be good to go 🙂


If you want, you can change the file extension from .mzp to .zip without causing any issues. It may make it easier for you to unzip the file. However in most cases you should not have to do this.
