Recently I am having issues with placed Illustrator files in Photoshop. When I go to edit them (double-click) I get an error message:
"To edit this item, please install Illustrator on your computer. If you were trying to place the item, you can do so by dragging it into an open document."
I have Illustrator installed and have never had an issue with it opening placed files.

Make sure AI is the default application on you system the vector files  in File explorer of finder try to  open a svg or ai  file does AI start up.  If you  uninstall a version of Photoshop or AI  Adobe may have reset file extension associations.

 

They do not open in AI on my maching for I doe not install AI they open in other applications like SVG will be display by Chrome or open in Notpad++ or InkScape. Depends on what .SVG is asspcoiated with.

Vector files are assigned to AI. I can open an ai or svg from my Desktop no problem. Seems to be more of a Photoshop issue not recognizing that AI is installed.

On windows what ever application I associate  the extensions .SVG and .AI with opens the smart object work file.  I believe Photoshop just has the OS open the file.
