My specs: I have a new Mac Studio with M1 Max chip and macOS Monterey 12.3 and I have AE 22.5 - the latest available update (andyes I tried reinstallingmore than once).
My issue: Very often AE just refuses to start up. The loading screen stops at "Initializing Required Components" and nothing more happens. Only solution is to restart the whole computer and try again. Even if AE loads, very often it randomly crashes or starts to give me various error messages in the middle of work. When I close it and try to load it up again, the same thing happens as mentioned above and I have to restart again.
