If you have installed Catalina on your Mac computer and are receiving messages about the Adobe AIR framework being damaged
consider this post from the Adobe Community forums.
By default, Catalina “quarantines” the Adobe AIR framework. The fix is simple. Open the terminal program on your computer and enter the following two lines one at a time (you can just copy and paste from below).
sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine ./Adobe\ AIR.framework
Note: If you’re not used to using Terminal, for the second command (the one that starts with ‘sudo’) you’ll have to type in the password you use to log in to your computer. You will not see the password being typed, which can be confusing.
