Problem: I have two versions of Duik installed

Hello everyone!

Hope you're all doing well in these crazy times!

I have a problem: I have two versions of DUIK (v16.2.22 and v16.2.23) installed on my system and I can't get rid of the old one.https://imgur.com/a/jP9axbv
Next Problem: If I go to Window - DUIK Bassel.2.jsx the version that appears is v16.2.22. The only way I can open v16.2.23 is through File-Scripts-Run Script File

Things I tried:
– Run the File "Uninstall Duik.jsx"
– Deleting the DUIK Files from Application - Adobe After Effects 2020 - Scripts - ScriptUI Panels
– Reinstalling After Effects
– Deleting the Folder "Duik.Bassel.2" from "Documents"
– Deleting every file from Duik
– Reinstalling DUIK v16.2.23
– When I go to "File–Scripts- Recent Script Files" I see a path that I cant really access https://imgur.com/a/4RsE2kR. I wanted to try deleting the Script that is on this path, because it seems to be the script of v16.2.22

My Computer is running on MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.7

Do you have any ideas how I can try to solve this?

My next step would be reinstalling the whole system, but I really would want to avoid that ;)

Anyway thank you for this awesome tool!

Ok, I think I solved it!

I had to copy the Duik Bassel.jsx into the "ScriptUI Panels" Folder.

I still have two Duik Bassel options unter "Windows", but if I open any of them v16.2.23 appears, which is ok for me.

Interesting part is, that if I delete Duik from the ScriptUI Panels folder, the option is still there, and v16.2.22 opens up.
I guess I have to live with it.

Anyway thank you for the awesome script, I donated a couple of days ago, it is really a great tool!

Hi, I think Duik may be installed both in the usual ScriptUI Panels, AND in the folder with the preferences of After Effects

You can open this folder from the preferences in After Effects, there's a button to locate it. Then, you'll find a "Script" subfolder there, have a look to see if you find Duik there.
It's where Ae installs it when using the command in the File>Scripts menu
