Without any specific info about the actual naming, the project structure and ultimately how the expression code references the controllers nobody can advise.

This is very likely an issue related to which Expression engine is being used - the Legacy ExtendScript or the newer Javascript.

 

Adobe has provided a script that updates Legacy Expressions so that they work within the stricter confines of Javascript. Go to File>Script>Run Script and go to the main AE Folder. Once there, look for the Scripts Sub-Folder to look for the script named, Update Legacy Expressions.jsx.

 

If that doesn't work, change the Expression Engine in the Project Settings dialog - click on the Rocket icon in the Project Panel. Or CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+K to get there.
