When I try to add my work to media encoder queue it used to give me an error about missing plugin. I found a video online that said to make a symlink from default location to where I have it installed so I did this:

mklink /J "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder CC 2015" "D:\Program Files\Adobe Media Encoder CC 2015"

Now when I go to add to media encoder queue, the media encoder splash screen appears and then it instantly crashes.

Does anyone know what I can do to get it working?

Media encoder takes a real long time to open, I think this is the problem. If I open media encoder first then after effects second it will export properly. Just got to wait 5 mins for media encoder to open fully first.
