I recently had a hard drive failure but managed to save everything onto a new drive. All Creative Cloud program work except After Effects which gives me this error upon startup: "After Effects Error: plug-in "scripting.aex" could not be loaded (126)." Do I need to uninstall and re-install AE cc?
Based on the extremely limited amount of information in your post (you haven't even told us what operating system your computer has), I would say yes. That seems like a reasonable step.
