This is a special note for users with more than 32 threads and running 32bit Adobe Photoshop on hardware with much more than 32 cores.
AMD Threadripper, AMD Epyc Photoshop can exceed the maximum logical cores, hence the workaround below.
Full explanation here: https://sick.codes/amd-epyc-th...
Installation requires the minimum following libraries:
winetricks atmlib gdiplus msxml3 msxml6 vcrun2005 vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008 ie6 fontsmooth=rgb gecko
What does not
Multiprocessor when using CPU hardware with more than 32 threads.
Users with more than 32 logical cores may be required to delete plugins MultiProcessor Support.8BX from within your Program Files
My CPU has 128 logical cores (threads) so Photoshop CS6 crashes as soon as any multiprocess task is done inside Photoshop with the error:
wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0065006C at address 0999226D (thread 0114), starting debugger...
The fix, as above, is to remove MultiProcessor capability.
# go to your wine prefixes and remove the files named MultiProcessor Support.8BX
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Adobe
find | grep -i MultiProcessor
Here were my MultiProcessor plugins:
./Adobe Photoshop CS6/Required/Plug-Ins/Extensions/MultiProcessor Support.8BX.bak
./Adobe Bridge CS6/Plug-Ins/MultiProcessor Support.8BX.bak
./Adobe Bridge CS6/apd/plugins/MultiProcessor Support.8BX.bak
What was not tested
Nothing. I've used it for 10 years.
I have used Photoshop on Linux for 10 years.
This fix took me a week to figure out.
