I have these popups when I turn on After Effects. May I know are there anywhere I can reinstall the plugins? How can I fix the "Couldn't find main entry point for AEXD.aex (48::72)" error? Any help would be much appreciated.

This plug-in is installed with the Adobe XD. I don't think it'll cause any issue other then preventing you from exporting Adobe XD files to After Effects.

Could you try doing a clean installation on After Effects and XD using the Adobe Cleaner tool.

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

Hey!

 

Removing the plugin created by the new XD update worked for me! 

go to - "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore\Public\"AEXD-44.0.12.7"

and remove "AEXD-44.0.12.7"

 

Just keep a copy elsewhere and test it out! hope this works for you.

Of course, if you remove the plugin that's causing problem then you won't get any more warning messages.
If you remove it, you won't be able to export from XD to AE.
I need to know if there is a fix for it.
I don't know if one can fix it on his/her end unless, of course, it's Adobe's fault and only they can fix it.

FIXED....

 

Hi there..!

I too faced the similar scenario having those warning and error pop-ups while launching After Effects 2019.

 

Scenario:- 

On my laptop

- I had already installed and updated Adobe XD to it's latest version.

- I have then installed Adobe After Effects 2019

 

Trial 1:- 

- I have uninstalled Adobe XD completely via Creative Cloud application.

(in the background that specific file from "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore\Public\AEXD-45.1.62.3\AEXD.aex" was removed....Obviously😄)

- I then launched Adobe After Effects 2019, it got launched perfectly WITHOUT those warning and error pop-ups.

 

I WAS HAPPY :party_popper:

 

Trial 2:- 

- I then installed back Adobe XD via the same Creative Cloud application.

- I then again launched Adobe After Effects 2019, it got launched perfectly WITH  WITH  WITHHHHHH those warning and error pop-ups

 

WELL...THEN I KNEW HOW TO BE HAPPY AGAIN...! 🤔

 

I then completely uninstalled Adobe XD, because currently there was no requirement for me to export from Adobe XD >> Adobe After Effects 2019

 

BBBBBBUUTTTT..........

 

If you wish to have Adobe XD, on your machine, I would suggest that you can rename that AEXD.aex plugin with some aplhabetical file extension, like AEXD.aex.xy, then Adobe After Effects 2019 will open WITHOUT those warning and error pop-ups....anddd.......you can use Adobe XD seamlessly for your UX or any other work.

 

Also I have noticed that Adobe XD, irrespective of having that renamed plugin file back from imaginary file extension to AEXD.aex form, and re-launching Adobe XDAdobe After Effects 2019 nor Adobe After Effects 2021, exporting to After Effects option inside Adobe XD shows an error, even if it is a line/path. Basically I can't export from Adobe XD >> Adobe After Effects 2021 (and also there was no requirement for me to EXPORT from XD>>AE)

 

-----

Hope I helped in some way 🙂

Thank you
