Just today, I updated to macOS Monterey and now I am having problems opening vector smart objects in Photoshop files. If Illustrator is closed, when I double click the smart object (or choose edit contents) Illustrator will launch but the file will not open. 

If Illustrator is open and I try to open the smart object, I get a Mac error window that says "The application "Adobe Illustrator 2022" can't be opened" with a -1703 error code. 

I'm using Photoshop 23.2.1 and Illustrator 26.0.3, which I went back to after seeing the problem first occur in 26.1. 

The computer is iMac Retina 5K, 27-inch 2019  |  3.6 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9  |  macOS Monterey 12.3

Thanks in advance

This should be resolved in macOS 12.3.1 that just went out.

Thanks for the details. Engineering is working with Apple on a fix.

Actualiza el sistema operativo a 12.3.1 o superior (no sé por qué versión anda) y se soluciona. Suerte!

Adobe's stupid workflow idea doesn't work for any professional. I work off a NAS/DAS via thunderbolt as half of all jobs are video using Premiere Pro and After Effects. I've been doing this for years with no issues until recently. It could be a Monterey issue, but it's only happening with photoshop for me, so I think it's a photoshop programming issue. I'm running a QNAP TVS872XT NAS/DAS via thunderbolt. Access from all other adobe apps is fine, so photoshop is the only app with a problem. Not just DNG for me, also ARW and PSD. Running Monterey 12.3.1 on a MacStudio M1 Max. Photoshop 23.3.1

The Adobe clown who recommended this workflow should be looking for another job, as they need to be fired.
