This maxscript allows the user to transfer Skin Modifier data from mesh objects onto a new skeleton. It assumes the incoming new skeleton has the exact same bone names as the old skeleton-- however, the "Load Envelopes" dialog will allow you to match bones manually so you could use different bone names if necessary.
See the included readme file for description and usage.
