Well, if you are running Cura 3.2.1, I would say that you should use C:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 3.2 instead of \Ultimaker Cura 3.0.

But the better place to put the script is in the configuration folder. In Cura go to Help -> Show configuration folder. In the folder that opens, there will be a folder named "scripts". Put your script in there.

The script won't load and throws an error because the file name differs from the class name contained in the file. Rename the file to:

VaryTempWithHeight.py

 

The file "cura.log" in the configuration folder should contain appropriate error messages (or warning), if a script can not be loaded.
