In order for Dynamic Link to work, all applications have to be from the same release versions. For example, you can't open AE CC 2015 comps in PP CC 2017.

High time to double-check what you have and what you don't!

From your description I don't know if this is a project from the earlier versions or a brand-new AE CC 2017 project in BOTH AE & PP.

In either case, I'd go with the earlier versions that you know, especially if you have to hit a deadline. Get 'em back if necessary, and don't let go of them.

CC 2017 is so full of bugs you need a can of Raid. Diagnosis of your particular set of CC 2017 problems could take some time. Think in terms of days to get the new apps running. And Adobe isn't much help, either.

Be sure to say thank you to Adobe for producing such a trouble-free set of applications.

Did you install After Effects before you installed Premiere Pro? I remember that if you don't install Audition before Premiere Pro, then "edit in Audition" will be grayed out. The program has to be installed first in order for Premiere Pro to see. Maybe that was the same problem you had with AE.
