While Photoshop and Lightroom appear to be 64 bit compliant and ready for the upcoming release of Apple's Catalina OS, there are a number of Adobe programs within Applications/Utilities that are not (various AAM registration notifiers, Adobe Application Manager, Setup and Unstalls).  Will there be any impact created by these 32 bit programs when I upgrade to Catalina?

There is MUCH more to Catalina's changes than 32 versus 64 bits. That's just the easy to describe, headline stuff. So, on NO ACCOUNT upgrade to Catalina without checking for a statement from Adobe for all the apps important to you.

It's impossible for Adobe to guararantee anything in advance because Apple can (and have) change the released system even more aftet the last beta. It's generally safer to wait also for the first dot release of the new system.

Wish I'd known that. After updating to Catalina 10.15 on my MacBook Pro, my Creative Cloud icon disappeared from the menu at the top of the desktop. I spent hours troubleshooting myself and another 4-5 hours with Adobe techs. I read somewhere someone said he/she got a message saying CC was not yet compatible with Catalina 10.15 when installation started. Wish I would have gotten that message, then I would have aborted install. Yesterday, when they called me back for a third time, a windy storm had taken out my internet, so I was not able to answer their call. I shall try again. Both the techs I've talked to have been very pleasant. I appreciate that. I'm not that tech savvy.

But till now I didn't find an overview over all Adobe apps and the compatibility and listed problems with Catalina. I found something here and there but it's not really clear if the apps will work or not … and if not wheter the problems affect my work with the app.

Doesn't answer the question about these apps in Applications/Utilities/ and mostly Application Manager but there are a couple in the Adobe Creative Cloud/HDCore / sub-folder.

If there are any left after all apps are declared compatible you can ignore them. If you upgrade now, you're risking a lot.

"Declared?"  When and how does that happen?  How do we know it did?  Why hasn't it already happened, this wasn't a surprise, it's been coming for over a year?

You are absolutely right! I have the same problem - especially with the 32 bit Application Manager and various AAM registration notifiers, Adobe Application Manager, Setup and Unstalls.Fortunately I haven't uploaded Catalina yet and will not do that befor all 32 bit progarmmes are "abolished".

>message saying CC was not yet compatible with Catalina 10.15 when installation started. Wish I would have gotten that message

 

Every time Apple issues a major upgrade, small things are changed right up until the upgrade is available... meaning that vendors like Adobe have to play catch up... and meaning that something is ALWAYS broken when Apple does a big upgrade

 

In the future, do not upgrade your Mac operating system for AT LEAST a month

And do not upgrade all Adobe apps for AT LEAST a month after Adobe MAX Updates. I did it (without updating macOS) and had to fight with several crashes and lost files …

Geb01 question is not answered at all. At least I do not see any solution how to update the application Manager and to abolish the AAM notifiers etc. Seems to be a problem Adobe has to solve!!!

Agree that Geb01's question is not yet answered.  The article linked by David__B does not mention

Adobe Applications Manager.  I have the same problem.  On my Mac Pro running Mojave (10.14.6),

I have received scary messages about AAM needing to be updated, presumably before I update my

Mac to Catalina.  However, I don't know how to do this.  I have Adobe Creative Cloud and several

applications (Photoshop, Lightroom, Acrobat), but ACC makes no mention of AAM.  My impression

from other Adobe web pages is that AAM was folded into ACC, but then why am I seeing these

scary popups?  Presumably AAM is still running (and needed).  What's going on here?

I also read (orspeculate) that AAM was folded into ACC - I invested quite some time to fgure that out. I think we should charge Adobe some money for not having solved the problem we have, and we are not the only ones.

Does the latest Lightroom Classic version allow proper migration of my Apple Photos library to Lightroom Classic while using Catalina?

It isn't a problem for most people. Doesn't mean you don't have a problem, but it means there isn't a magic bullet. Why not tell us all about your symptoms, and the version of CC you're trying to use? "Corrupted" doesn't tell us much.
