Although I read online that others had the same issue as me, I couldn't find any solution.
please see post # 15 http://forums.adobe.com/thread/630006 POST # 15
After I restarted my pc,
After effects cs6 is staying that "I have more than 1 copy of plugins and to remove one of them".
Now, I know this is a normal message from adobe, however, I know it's not true because:
1. I have NO extra copies of plugins.
2. AE is saying I have a copy of EVERY SINGLE plugin installed. (around 300 )
3. I removed ALL plugins until AE could ***** about duplicates.
Once I removed all of them, I got " TRACKER _REGISITER:MISSING SUITE "
"AE can not continue"
Has anyone experienced this before?
I'd run the AE cleaner tool, remove the Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/After Effects CS6 directory completely, then re-install and re-install your plug-in's.
You shouldn't go about removing plug-ins from their folders and expect things to work. All it takes is deleting one and you can get the error message you are seeing.
It's very unlikely that a virus caused your problem. It could have been a host of other things. It only takes one duplicate hiding somewhere in an alias or installed in the wrong directory to foul things up. If you've got 300 additional plug-ins then it's not surprising that something got broke during an update or an install especially if your plug-ins were not installed with an installer.
