It's hard to help without any information.

Can you post a screenshot of your entire Ae UI, showing the expression and as much of the timeline as possible?

Expressions should be cross-platform; I wonder if perhaps there's an issue with some kind of footage?

I'll give you example,
All layers has Fill effect
Adjustment layer [controller of all layers colors]
The fill effect get error and all layers gone to red.

What is the expression, and what is the error it throws?

A screen shot would be really, really helpful. I need to be able to understand what you are seeing.

I don't get this on my PC but i get one for you.



(it says: „After Effects Warning – Class ‚Effect‘ has no property or method with the name ‚color‘. Expression deactivated. Error in Line 1.“)

Is the PC using an English language and the Mac using German? If so, it might not be able to address the property by name, because the string literals are different. You might have to address the property by number instead.

Assuming that the effect named "Text Color" is a color control effect:
thisComp.layer("Controller").effect("Text Color")(1)

Found the solution. Expressions targeting effects are language sensitive! You need to start AE in english. You can do so by adding a empty textfile in your Home->Documents folder on Mac called "ae_force_english.txt"

OR

You can rename every expression effect and attribute.
