AE bridgeTalk script error after upgrade ("TARGET COULD NOT BE LAUNCHED").

Hi everyone,
I have updated my versions of AE (18.4.0) and AME (15.4), and my script doesn't seem to want to work anymore. It should check if AME is running, and if it isn't it should automatically open it from AE.
 
It has always worked. It now reports the following error: "TARGET COULD NOT BE LAUNCHED". It seems that the "app.getExporter()" command does not even launch the software. If instead I manually open AME, then everything works.
 
Anyone have the same problem with bridgeTalk? 
Here is a snippet of code, thank you all.
 
 
var ameStatus = BridgeTalk.getStatus("ame");
 
if (ameStatus == "ISNOTRUNNING") {
    var bridge = new BridgeTalk();
    bridge.target = 'ame';
    bridge.body += 'app.getExporter();';
    bridge.onError = function (msg) { alert (msg.body);  }
    bridge.onResult = function(msg) { [...]  }
    bridge.send();
}
 
//ERROR: TARGET COULD NOT BE LAUNCHED
