Finder Scripting Extension

I've been working on getting Applescript running on my system (System 7.5.5 on a Power Mac 5260).  I can use it with any scriptable application except for the Finder, which always gives me time-out errors.  I'm 99% sure it has to do with the Finder Scripting Extension.  I have version 1.2 of said extension, and version 1.1 of Applescript.  When I boot up, a dialog box pops up after all the extensions are loaded but before anything appears on the desktop which says "The extension 'Finder Scripting Extension' cannot be used because it is too old."  What in the heck does this mean and how do I fix it so I can have my scriptable Finder?
