If you are a freelancer sometimes you don't have access to the ScriptUI Panels folder. Here is a tip on how to run scripts outside of that folder.

  • Save the script anywhere you have access like the Desktop or Documents folder
  • If the script extention is .jsxbin, then rename it to be .jsx 
  • In After Effects choose File -> Scripts -> Run Script File
  • And choose the script file from the Desktop of where ever you saved it
  • You won't be able to dock the script but it should be able to run normally otherwise
