MZP questions

Rather than putting my ms, mcr and icon files all over the place, i thought it would be better to keep them packaged in an mzp file and simply leave it in Scripts\Startup, however my scripts no longer show up where they used to in the Customize menu. Does anyone know what the correct process is to do this? Can mcr files not be read from an mzp?

You should think of a mzp more as a installer instead of a script package. Once it's run it installs files to the right place (depending on how you set it up offcourse).
I think for what you want, you'd better use another approach.

for example I would go for something like:

-maxroot\scripts\yourscripts -- script files
-maxroot\scripts\yourscripts\icons -- icons
-maxroot\scripts\startup\yourscripts -- macros (although there are other places they can go too, I admit macroscript management sucks a bit in max. I don't use it directly)

My 2 cents,
