We know that Dimension freezes on startup because it won't run on an old CPU with no AVX instructions, such an old cpu is in the Mac Pro 5,1.
So I tryed to run Dimension using the Software Emuator of AVX istructions that Intel provides, but with no luck 😞 Can anyone figure out how to run the software emulator properly?
Or, can Adobe make the emulator process to be included in the launch of Dimension?
Here is the intel emulator download page: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-software-development-emulator
This is the command I tryed:
sudo /Users/UserName/Downloads/sde-external-8.50.0-2020-03-26-mac/sde -nhm -avx -- /Applications/Adobe\ Dimension/Adobe\ Dimension.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Dimension
And these are the results on the Terminal:
[app] loading euclid-core
Loading pepper plugin /Applications/Adobe Dimension/Adobe Dimension.app/Contents/Frameworks/euclid-core-plugin.pepper;application/x-escher-plugin
[app] done loading euclid-core
2020-05-03 12:22:40.414 Adobe Dimension[796:13502] The application with bundle ID com.adobe.dimension is running setugid(), which is not allowed.
The Cpu is too old / cheap to run Dimension so the emulator was nothing to work with
Why Adobe doesn't have it = what would be the point
