Impossible Photolab 6 installation

Hi, I just purchased PL6 Elite upgrade, and I get a weird message from my Mac :
“Impossible d’utiliser cette version de l’application « DxO PhotoLab 6 » avec cette version de macOS. Vous possédez macOS 10.15.7. L’application requiert macOS 11.6 ou ultérieur.”

Could you help to understand what’s happening there ? Thanks

Just as the message says, you need a newer version of macOS.

I’m guessing you are running Catalina, but you need a minimum of Big Sur. This may mean that have to buy a newer Mac if your present one doesn’t support Big Sur.


It is just as @Joanna indicated. Here are the MacOS requirements for PhotoLab 6 Elite.

Minimum system configuration:
• Any CPU
• 8 GB RAM
• 4 GB available disk space
• macOS 11.6 (Big Sur) or higher

Recommended system configuration
• Intel® Core™Processor with 6 cores or higher, or Apple Silicon™
• 16 GB RAM
• macOS 12.0 (Monterey) or higher
• 6 GB available disk space
• AMD Radeon™Pro 580X or better for Intel® Macs



The translation is: “Unable to use this version of the “DxO PhotoLab 6” application with this version of macOS. You have macOS 10.15.7. The application requires macOS 11.6 or later.”

Seems pretty straightforward. I’m not a MAC user, so I can’t confirm if the message should be taken at face value, but that is the translation.

OK I see, thank you @MSmithy @mwsilvers @Joanna. I had made a confusion between OS 10.11 and OS 11 :upside_down_face:
