Python script error message for a3dNameHelper

I'm trying to run a Python script for renaming geometry that I have used in Maya 2018 and 2020. It has to be copied and pasted into the scripts folder, I double-checked Maya 2018 and there is a slightly different path to the scripts folder for Maya 2022. As a quick work around I reopened the project file in Maya 2018 and added the "_low" and "_high" suffixes, but I'd prefer to be able to run the script in Maya 2020 for future projects. I attached the installation instructions .txt file for the script for reference.


This is the script and the error message that I am getting:


import A3dNameHelper


# Error: ImportError: file /Applications/Autodesk/maya2022/ line 142: bad magic number in 'A3dNameHelper': b'\x03\xf3\r\n' #

Of course, there is an updated version of it for Maya 2020 and higher available for download. I got it, problem solved.


Did I check on that before posting my question?


Of course not.


Thanks anyway, guys.
