Orientation Constraint expression error on ferris wheel Gondola (with screenshot)

I am trying to follow the official DUIK tutorial and rig the ferris wheel and the orientation constraint button on the DUIK panel does not work for me as when I apply it, there is an expression error and the gondola will not remain upright as I turn the wheel. I have attached the screenshot and I have rigged everything else perfectly in the tutorial

I solved it! !!!!

I had my expression set to Legacy extended script instead of Javascript under Project Settings>Expression settings.

Sorry I finally figured it out, I had been searching and searching and finally got lucky.

Will be fixed in 16.2.13,
And I'll probably add some kind of "sanity check" in Duik to make sure everything is configured the best way for Duik and performance in After Effects
