"Unable to Execute Script" error message

Post by LTurner » Mon Nov 26, 2018 3:37 pm

Hi,

I have installed Duik Bassel for AE CC2019 on my Mac OS Mojave 10.14.1 and I keep getting this error message when I try to open Duik in AE "Unable to execute script at line 9368. Invalid Image date"

I've tried deleting the script, re-downloaded Duik, put the Duik Bassel.jsx and ffmpeg files from the zip drive into the AE script UI panel and the error message still appears.

What should I do?

Thanks

Hi,

This is very weird and I've never seen this error before.

It seems to concern some kind of date, have you tried changing the date and time of your system, just to see if it fixes the error?

It may be related to "ExtendScript Toolkit".
First, you can try to go to the preferences of After Effects and turn off JavaScript Debugging if it is enabled.

If it still does not work:

I have some feedback from Adobe saying this :
We're doing more testing before releasing an updated ESTK; in the meantime, this seems to fix the problem.

Code: Select all

1.       Open the file(Mac): "/Applications/Adobe ExtendScript Toolkit CC/ExtendScript Toolkit.app/Contents/SharedSupport/Required/cdic/11BTBackend.jsx"
2.       Search for the value: 604800000 (line reads bt.timeout = 604800000)
3.       Replace that value with 604800 and save
4.       Quit ExtendScript Toolkit and relaunch.

AAaaaand you can also try this :

In the folder /Library/Application Support/ find either a DuAEF or a Duik folder, and remove it (them), then try again to launch Duik.

Let me know if some (and which) of these solutions worked ;)
