Maybe your system is hanging on other incompatible plug-ins, here's how to find out on MacOS: Open Library/Application Support/Adobe/Premiere Pro/22.0/Plugin Loading.log. Scroll all the way to the bottom and see which plugin Premiere attempted to load last. Most likely thats the one that crashed the app.
I appreciate you posting this info, Brett. It solved my crash on startup problems with PPro 2022. A folder of GoPro plugins was the culprit in my case. Your tip about the looking at the Plugin Loading.log file was key. Thanks!
