I am a CC member and EVERY TIME Adobe pushes out an update, I have to sit through fifteen minutes or more of A) waiting for the Verifying... dialog to appear and then B) that Verifying dialog to actually complete.
What the actual fudge?
Adobe is saying this is Apple's fault, but surely there is enough blame to go around.
I'm running MacOS Ventura and am actively seeking Adobe alternatives given how frustrating this is.
Apple has a security mechanism where new software is verified. It happens with everything you install. Larger applications take more time. It is what it is. This has zero to do with Adobe other than Adobe distributing large applications.
