Hi people!
Today I'm experiencing this frustrating error.

I've made a work project on my home PC, packed it with the dependencies, zipped and unzipped it on the server at work. While on my own home PC and my co-worker's MacBook it opens fine, on my work iMac it keeps crashing when I try to open it. When all have the same AE version (2022) and OS (on my PC I've Windows tho). If I open a blank new project and drag-and-drop my project into it, it works just fine, until I try to open my comp.
It keeps sending this ZANZIBAR-2 error (screenshots here for reference and full error code I've tried deleting cache and memory, deleting all scripts, hiding the AE preference folder (Application Support/Adobe/After Effects on Mac, AppData/Adobe/After Effects on Windows), even opening it with a previous version, but nothing seems to work.
I'm pretty much desperate and confused at this point.
Can anyone help me, please?
