Photoshop CC 2014: applescript to duplicate a layer from one document to another in specific location no longer works

I use photoshop with use of Applescript to move layers from one file to another. The script line "duplicate layer 1 of current document to after layer 1 of OtherDocRef" works in Photoshop CC but now that I am using Photoshop CC 2014 it no longer works and has an error. This means my team can not upgrade to Photoshop CC 2014.

Should be fixed in the 2014.2.2 update. Choose Help>Updates... to install.

Just to add in, "duplicate layer 1 of current document to OtherDocRef" works but if I add "after layer 1 of" to declare where in the layer list to copy it to, it does not work. So
"duplicate layer 1 of current document to after layer 1 of OtherDocRef" is what I need and have use till now.

Saw an update come out a few days ago and it did not seem to fix this. Will hope for better luck in the next one.

Recent update was to camera raw. Hoping the next core Photoshop update will correct this.
