      The Cinema 4d Lite editor is not opening from within After Effects. I am able to create new MAXON Cinema 4d files from the File>New menu and from the File>Export menu item. I am able to use the Cinema 4D Effect on a layer to view a “c4d” file in side of a composition. But when I click the edit>Edit Original option of a “.cd4” file my mouse icon changes to “waiting” for a second as if it is going to open something, but then nothing happens.

      I double check the path of the Cinema 4D Lite application.
      I temporarily increased the permissions to “everyone full control” on the following folders

      • Program Files (x86)\Adobe
      • \Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe
      • \Users\[user]\Documents\Adobe

      I am running:
      After Effects CC 13.7.1.6.
      Windows 10 PC
      Processer is Intel i7-4770k @ 3.50 GHz
      16 GB RAM
      GeForce 970 GTX
