We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
When I open Dimension, I am greeted by nothing except a blank dark grey screen which does not respond to anything. I can move it around and expand it, but beyond that, all mouse clicks, keyboard have no effect.
Also when I exit in the corner it refuses to close. I have to end the task in task manager.
Brand spankin' new Windows 10 computer. I will screenshot the specs.
I would really appreciate anyone who is able to help me with this. If it is an idea for a solution or an idea of what the problem is. Also feel free to ask for more info.
In Windows GPU settings you can add applications to a list and then set which GPU the app will use. It could be worth setting your better GPU to handle Dimension.
the task manu says Dimension failed to boot... electron is the shell so it looks like the system refused to allow Dimension and that tends to be a antivirus software giving fake feedback [like Norton does] or the network is unable to link up to Adobe servers
I would start by running the Adobe cc app first, that should flag network issues like files needing to sync etc before trying Dimension
as Collin points out, Windows allows you to adjust how the exe runs... just right click the Dimension exe to temp try different Gpu options or Admin to confirm those are not the problem
also Dimension needs access to the Cpu and some people set their new Windows systems to block that so check your security options
Thank you all so much for your support. It was indeed a case of needing to update the driver.
Opened device manager, went to display adaptors, right clicked and clicked update driver.
Problem solved now
thanks for letting us know how you got on mate
So I wanted my discreete GPU to handle Dimension and it only showed a grey surface no matter what I did - changed it to the integrated GPU (Vega 8) on the AMD chip and voila - it works - AMD or or not don´t know why and don´t care just so long as it works.
