Dimension will not open on my MacPro5,1. The splash screen is incomplete; the 'Open' and 'New' buttons are blank. I have to force quite to close the app. There are no error messages or requests to report to Adobe. The splash screen just freezes. These apps run as expected:
Bridge (a little buggy; will freeze sometimes)

I tried that. Same problem
What version of macOS?
[Moderator moved to Dimension.]
Did you restart your computer?
the min spec for for Mac is (2011 or newer), so this system is too old as kglad linked to
I upgraded the processor to the same specs as 2012. The model identifier reads 5,1.
You are hitting the limits of your older machine. Stuff will continue to break more frequently.
Adobe will still be reading the model number from your motherboard and reject it the same as it does if you try to install to the new M1 machines
and yes even if you did force an install this machine would be pushed to be able to rendor even basic models... I would try Blender instead as that rendor engine has a lot less overhead mate
Does all the Adobe software run on the new M1 Macs?
It would seem that the CPU can no longer be upgraded.
Thank you everyone for your time.
