Basically, there was 'Program Files', whichever one comes after that in your root directory (not at my computer right now). It is where Live is installed and will have a Resources folder. With that you find the appropriate folder. There will be a list of other devices. Drop your folder amongst them and you should be in luck.
Ok awesome, thanks so much!

Same question. There's not a lot inside the script, so maybe it's just a line or 2. But which and what?
+1. I can't find anything online. Has ANYONE figured this out?

I modified a script from to make a generic 'red box script' for any MIDI controller. I am sharing it here in case it helps anyone else out, because i did not find another simple solution out there.
Thank you for this! How do you move the actual red box? I'm pushing the buttons on my MPD24 that correspond the remote script, but can't get the red box to move :/

+1, this RedBox script indeed does not compile on Live 9.1.2. Tried looking at it but couldn't get it to work.

THIS script below however does the trick. Thanks to bobavenger.

Sorry for the trouble and thanks for the heads up. I am still using Live7 and actually not even using this script at the moment. I may or may not revisit it. If I figure out what is up, I will post an update. But if the other script works, then I'd say the problem is solved! Thanks!

+1 for a reup, or any hints on how to implement this in the userconfig file.

Cheers :)

not 100% what the OP was asking for but this could be useful:
MacBook Pro Retina 15 inch/mid 2014
OS X Yosemite 10.10.3, 2.5 ghz i7, 16 gigs ram
