Resolve 16.2 Won't Open on Hackintosh

PostSat Mar 21, 2020 12:49 pm

On AMD-based Hackintosh systems, the latest DaVinci Resolve Studio 16.2 crashes on the loading screen.

See this thread where the problem and potential fix was discovered:

Davinci Resolve 16.2 can work with the same fix as Matlabs needs:

Replace this file in the /contents/library folder within the Davinci Resolve package ... mp5.dylib/

The stock open mp library has some functions running only on intel CPUs.

The problem seems to be with the libiomp5.dylib file included in 16.2. DRS 16.1.2 works fine on the same AMD-based Hackintosh machine.
