Version 2.72. This addon: http://pasteall.org/56112/python

I coped the code and pasted it into a notepad doc, saved as a python file.

I have tried installing through the installer, then manually have moved the file into C:\Users*Username*\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79 and F:\Blender\2.72\scripts\addons

My Blender is in the F directory rather than C.. is this complicating something? Basically the file is not showing up for me to check the box to activate it.

    $\begingroup$ Check whether you have any output on the 'Console' (on Windows you can view the console via 'Window/Toggle System Console' in the menu - for Linux you can launch Blender from the command-line (move into the Blender directory and run 'blender'). It's likely that whatever errors are causing this not to run are being output there. $\endgroup$ – Rich Sedman Mar 16 at 8:14
  • $\begingroup$ In addition to comment above, To clarify you are using 2.72 (not 7.27)? Type bpy.utils.script_paths("addons") into the python console. It will print a list of paths where blender looks for addons. btw Both the paths, (user and programme) will have a 2.72 in them. $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Mar 16 at 18:32
  • $\begingroup$ I meant 2.72, sorry. I am getting the error "fake_module: addon missing 'bl_info' gives bad performance' and then it links to the C:\Users*Username*\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.72\scripts\addons/removeunusedvertexgroups.py location. Then it says the modules were installed from the f location to the c addons locations. I was able to install a different addon and it works.. this one does have the bl info so im confused. Thanks. $\endgroup$ – user70608 Mar 16 at 23:05

    $\begingroup$ Re indent error, Which OS / browser are you using. I often see this with copy paste on ubuntu / firefox where the last tab goes inexplicably missing. Make sure you haven't accidentally cut and pasted and missed the bl_info dictionary on the top. Further to @RichSedman can also look at the system console output for addons loading by typing bpy.ops.script.reload() into python console and read the messages there. btw can you post a more permanent link to @coDEmanX 's addon? PasteAll links are removed after a few months making this question less useful to others in the future.. $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Mar 17 at 4:56

Okay, so I had to find another version of the file. Something was wrong with that one.. then I had to indent line 63.
