XD to AE export not working

Windows 10 user, latest builds of Xd ( and Ae (16.0.1 (build 48)) installed, when attempting to export assets from Xd to Ae, it does not work. Workflow is: 1) select assets from within Xd 2) select Export/After Effect from Xd menu, 3) nothing happens. Interesting, but after one attempt at exporting, any subsequent attempts show the export to AE option grayed out. I have tried with AE open and closed with the same result.

    It's sad that to fix this I have to uninstall and then reinstall XD.

    Adobe XD? More like Adobe LOL.

    on my side updating/reinstalling does not change the grayed out export button.
    BUT I need to mention that I´m running a new XD version on my Win10 but together with an AE 2017 on two machines (company reason).
    The AEXD.aex is existing.

    Since the new version of Adoxe XD / AE, i can't export the files to After Effect.

    Steps to reproduce the issues: files > export > After Effect
    Expected result: export AE file successfully
    Actual result : AE automatically opens, but then nothing happens. unlike before, the files do not appear on AE.

    Thanks a lot.

    adobe after effects version :16.1.0

    Could you please check if plugins folder is present on your machine?

    If its not there, please try re-installing XD to get the correct plugin.

    I have tried re-installing After Effects but I still get the same error message when I try to export an artboard from XD to After Effects.

    Hi Ayomide,

    Could you please try re-installing After effects? This has helped many other users and hence would be worth trying.

    Adobe XD

    Version of Adobe XD: 15.0.12

    Install a new version of XD (15.0.12).
    Open any file and try to export any shape, picture or text.

    Expected result: Successful export to After Effects CC 2019 (16.0).
    Actual result: Disabled button of export to After Effects. Export isn't working by pressing Ctrl + Alt + F.
