Default Need advice on which version of PT to use in Mac OS 12.5

I just upgraded my mac from Sierra 10.12.6 to Monterey 12.5 and need help with which version of Pro Tools I should use and how I can download it. I currently own a perpetual license for Pro Tools 12.7.1. I tried opening this version and it won't work so I'm assuming I need a newer version of PT.

thank you

The age, type, and system specs of your Mac should also be taken into consideration.

Although I haven’t put it through it’s paces I’m running 2022.7 Ultimate on 12.5 with no issues, 12.5 is not officially supported yet. I’m still installing VIs, no problems with Slate Drums v4 & v5, Omnisphere, Keyscape, Trilian or Stylus RMX. NI Komplete 13 has issues with a few in the package like Massive, FM8 and a couple of others, I’ll install it later avoiding those. I’m needing my Cubase 9.5 to collaborate with a friend in Nashville so I’m adding a Mojave installation on an external USB 3.0 NVMe drive if the drive gets here, vendor shipped it DHL which blows chunks.

I also have Ivory II American Grand working, plan on installing VEPro and Korg Collection 3 before the weeks out along with a bunch of isolated soft-synths to install too plus effects. Forgot what a J*O*B this is. This is all on a 2015 retina MacBook Pro i7/512 flash/16Gb ram and two external USB drives already, waiting on that third one.
