Anki not working on Mac Monterrey 12.2

I updated my Macbook and now when I try to download and open anki, the app will not open. I’m able to download the package, then when I try to open the actual app it tries for a few minutes then says “application not responding.” I have tried downloading older versions of anki, ensuring that I delete the other packages before I open it. Any suggestions on versions that work on new macs or troubleshooting?

Does the problem persist with the latest beta version? If so, does renaming your prefs21.db file to something else allow it to start?

Problem persists with the latest Beta version. I just tried changing the file name which did not work unfortunately.

Any other suggestions?
