Bonus Tools 2013.5 install issue

I run Maya on two computers here as per my subscription license, on one of them I was able to install the 2013.5 bonus tools fine, but on the other when I run the installer (for Win64) I get a '2013.5 is not installed on this system, please install before installing bonus tools' error and the install is canceled.

Fine I thought, I'll just copy the folder from the working install to the non-working one (Programs>Autodesk>BonusTools2013.5 ) and the prefs folder from the Documents folder too, but no luck. The bonus tools menu appears but running any of the commands gives a script not found error. I've looked though the Maya.env file and some of the files in the prefs but can't find a reference to bonus tools in any of them.

Long story short - what file do I have to edit to get the path to the bonus tools scripts working?

You probably missed the modules folder. You'll need to copy that from C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2013.5

Yes, that's spot on, I found a text file in the modules folder with the path in it, once copied over things are working fine, great. I'll know where to look in future.

Many thanks!
