It will depend what the profile is called, If that is the profile name you see in Mach then that is the correct location.
Not sure what you are meaning though, are you saying its doing as you want now?

Ok ive moved it to a few folders now. What it does now is it just pauses on the M-code call and sits there. No message box nothing

Ok just noticed its the reset, maybe it will not throw the message box if its after a reset, not sure, try with the message box before.
To see which folder you are needing to put it in right click  the shortcut you use to launch Mach abd look at its  properties and see what its target is.

Does the m-code file go right into the root directory or does it go into one of the macro folders? ive got it in a few places already.

Ok just tried and it works fine here so I think it may either be the wrong folder or could well be something to do with MSM as its not a standard screenset so it may be screwing with it.

It goes into the macro folder of the profile you are using so if for example the profile you are using is dcattena the location would be
C:\Mach3\Macros\dcattena
