Yes, the only way to run Bryce on Lion is to use something like Parallels or any one of a few other options for creating a pc environment on a mac machine. Hopefully in the next year or so Daz will find a way to get Bryce to work with the newer Mac OS’s

Yes we have been assured that it will be looked into as soon as Bryce re-enters the dev cycle,

As they have just releasedt the latest edition of DS we can only hope that this is getting closer.

Partitioning on a Mac is very easy.  I just made another partition on my Mac Pro and on my Laptop.  Once the partition was made and named, I then installed Snow Leopard and then added all the Daz 3D Products.  Bryce works like a charm.  All I have to do is switch from one partition to the other.  It is not ideal and is a pain in the butt, however, it works.  I don’t understand the time that it’s taking to get this fixed.  I would assume that most of the users of Daz Products are on Apple computers.  To just leave us hanging out there and them still coming out with new products, I just don’t understand.  I would think with the technical people they have working for them they could have come out with a fix before this.  Now, apple has another OS coming out and I’m sure that Bryce won’t work with it either.

I think you will find that this is not a safe assumption. True quite a high proportion of Bryce users will be using Macs, as Bryce was originally a Mac only app, as we all know.

However you have to remember that traditionally the main Daz3D customer base were poser users and more used PCs than Macs. Those people who have moved over to Daz Studio will also be more biased towards the PC users rather than the Mac users, numbers wise.

Daz3D does have Mac developers, but the Mac developer who had the specialised Bryce knowledge was employed on contract, and the contract ended not long after the last Bryce dev cycle did. Lion did not come out until after the dev cycle for Bryce had ended.

Daz3D has said that when Bryce re-enters the dev cycle then they will work on getting it to work in Lion, and Mountain Lion, but haven’t given a time frame.

At the moment development is concentrating on DS and Carrara.

Yes as Kerya says, this is a frequent problem when installing Bryce for the first time. THe problem arises becuse Bryce is a 32bit app and you are probably running on a 64bit system. You need to add the missing .dll in your VisualC++. which is included in the vcredist_x86 redistributable form Microsoft, which is spoken about in the link Kerya has given you.

I can not even finish the registration of Bryce Pro.
Is that because my Mac Mini is running 64bits OS?

I am sorry - I don’t know anything about Macs ...

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

On the Bryce Store page it does say

Bryce 7 Pro is not currently compatible with MacOS 10.9, 10.8, or 10.7. Please do not use it with these platforms. Bryce WILL work with 10.6.
