At launch I get this error message randomly the last few days. Any idea where it is telling it to read the same folder twice? Obviously I checked and there is only one in the location mentioned on all 3000 of them. Any help is appreciated.
Do yopu have any additional scripts installed? A lot of the times this is caused by said scripts not finding stuff. Other than that I might imagine an install issue where either an older version of AE was not correctly deleted or some folder misnamed. Hard to say. A screenshot of the actual install folders might help. I would also check if a folder isn't simply hidden by Windows and/or it has created some weird restore point/ shadow copy that brings back zombie files. Other than that of course a clean reinstall may be advisable.
