Media Encoder not opening on M1 Mac - Freezing on AEXD.plugin

This is a new error because the encoder was opening fine an hour ago. I had a queue of items in Encoder, but not the file I was looking for. 

 

So I deleted the items in the queue and tried several times to take my composition from After Effects to AME. The composition wouldn't carry across, so I tried restarting AME. That's when it started hanging when the opening sequence reaches 'AEXD.plugin'

 

I've tried loading from the Applications folder as another thread suggested, with no luck. Any ideas?

This worked for me. 

Re-install Media Encoder, and make sure After Effects or your other applications are updated through Creative Cloud.

Same issue here. Plus, when i can start rendering in AME, when the computer goes in screen protection mode, the render stops and get stuck to never restart again. I have to start all over again. It's impossible to work like this.
