ExtendScript is a 32-bit app and wont run on Catalina . The alternative is Visual Studio running the ExtendScript Debugger extension.

I haven‘t used Visual Studio that much, so maybe someone else will jump in. If you are just starting try restarting after you install the ExtendScript Extension, and maybe uninstall the 32-bit ExtendScript Toolkit app if it is still in your Application folder. Before debugging save your .js file in a work folder. Also make sure you choose an engine (main) and language as well as the target application:

Thanks for your suggestions.  

I have never run ESTK on this computer.

I have tried manually setting "targetspecifier" and have used a number of different guesses, but each time I get an alert window

with the following message: 

TypeError: Cannot read property 'label' of undefined

As I said, I have tried a number of guesses.  Examples,  "acrobat-20.064""/Applications/Adobe Acrobat DC/Adobe Acrobat.app/Contents/MacOS/AdobeAcrobat", "acrobat-2020.009.20074"

 

If anyone has any suggestions for what to try for Acrobat Pro DC,  I would love to give it a try.

Here is output I get when I specify a "targetspecifier" before the undefined error.

 

Starting /Users/rdp/JSProjects/MedicareDebugg/code.js in target: acrobat-20.064 and engine: main.

If your code is for Acrobat might be better to ask in the Acrobat forum.

There is no forum for Adobe ExtendScript Debugger.

I posted here because this forum seems to have the most interest in this product.

I meant the Acrobat forum where there are Acrobat JavaScript threads.

 

Adobe Acrobat isn’t listed as a target application in my Visual Studio Code.
