DxO Photo lab with vintage MAC running under Yosemite
« on: February 18, 2018, 10:08:57 pm »
Bonjour,
Finally I decide today to buy the Photo Lab licence. I got the licence code.

This licence code is OK with my old Macbookpro mid-2010 under OS/X El Capitan 10.11.6, but  I am not able to install Photo Lab in my iMAC  (20 inches, mid-2009) under OS/X Yosemite 10.10.

This vintage iMAC is not working properly with El Capitan, the Graphic Processor Unit (GPU)  causes kernel panic and black display. All  Adobe products are OK.

I can upgrade my MacBookPro from El Capitan to MacOS Sierra, but it is well known that MacOS Sierra  is the last update for that  vintage macbookpro.

What  are the DxO plans for future release of Photo Lab  and old OS/X?

Is there a way to make Photo lab running  under Yosemite?

The specs for PhotoLab, according to the release notes, says that it requires El Capitan so it is not a surprise that it will not install under Yosemite. The release notes can be found here:

I do not work for Dxo, so I do not know, but PhotoLab says it works on the latest 3 OS releases (El Capitan, Sierra and High Sierra) and I would not expect new PL releases after the next Apple OS upgrade to continue working that far back. It might, but I would not expect it to.

I have no idea. Perhaps someone on this forum has found a way.

Unfortunately there comes a time when old hardware cannot cope with the demands of new software. I think you are making the right decision, a new Mac is the way to go :-)
