Hi i was trying to open AE when i suddenly get an error out of nowhere. its telling me that there are multiple copies of a plugin in my drive?? (actually it duplicated every single effect).. i dont know why or how that happened. my AE was working perfectly two days ago. ive searched for a solution everywhere and nothings working:/ 

ive restarted my computer, checked for the duplicates by going on the mediacore folder but theyre nowhere to be found. 

please if anyone could help me find a solution.. 

also i dont really wanna uninstall after effects as it'd delete everything and ive downloaded a lot of plugins/presets etc and i dont think i can find everything ive downloaded anywhere 😞

ps. i have AE 2018

ps. 2 i also have AE 2017 but its never given me any issues before.. idkScreen Shot 2020-03-31 at 11.36.44 PM.png

Hi there,

 

Welcome to the community and sorry for your issue.

Did you check for the duplicated plug-ins at the locations mentioned in the screenshot?

Let us know if deleting them helps.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

i installed the latest version today and got the same error. Unistalled and removed any preferences and then reinstalled and got the same error. Is there a fix for this yet?

It's strange that the reported two folders for each displayed duplicate displays the same location. I think this may be due to an AE Prefs error or perhaps a lower level issue with your harddrive.

If your AE Preferences files have errors it's pointless doing a new install IF you select to migrate Previous Settings during the installation process.

 

I suggest you delete AE's Prefs to see if the message appears.
