CPU I have downloaded Adobe Creative Suite. It will not open as it calls for an SSE2 extension. There is a program that bypasses it called Production Studio but this has gone out of circulatin and I cannot get it. THERE MUST BE A WAY. I know you can edit the ini file but I did not get one with Creative Suite. I really only need After Effects and not the whole program. Thanks

Can you be more specific on any details of the error. Here's what SSE2 is: SSE2 extends MMX instructions to operate on XMM registers, allows the programmer to completely avoid the eight 64-bit MMX registers "aliased" on the original IA-32 floating point register stack. This permits mixing integer SIMD and scalar floating point operations without mode switching required between MMX and x87 floating point operations. However, this is overshadowed by the value of being able to perform MMX operations on the wider SSE registers. Other SSE2 extensions include a set of cache-control instructions intended primarily to minimize cache pollution when processing indefinite streams of information, and a sophisticated complement of numeric format conversion instructions. AMD's implementation of SSE2 on the AMD64 (x86-64) platform includes an additional 8 registers, doubling the total number to 16 (XMM0 through XMM15). These additional registers are only visible when running in 64-bit mode. Intel adopted these additional registers as part of their support for x86-64 architecture (officially known as Intel 64) in 2004.

All my programs open up as a LNK file how do I fix that

Yes, go to one of the files that you KNOW what type of file it is like a xxxxx.PDF. that file opens with adobe then "right click" to open the menu of choices with that file. EXAMPLE "xxxxx.PDF" and select the menu choice "OPEN WITH"
A new menu box will open and you should be able to select the correct program to open the file with, i.e. "ADOBE READER" for the .PDF files. (BE CAREFUL), usually in the bottom left corner of this menu screen there will be a small check box with the question "open all files like this/or type" using this program. If you only use ADOBE for PDF files which you probably do then it's ok. BUT if it is a plain text file or a binary file that has been set to be opened with something else then you have more serious issues to fix.
The same is with MS Word files Power Point ect. select the appropriate program under "open with" to correct the file relationship

Does dell dimenion 2400 have sse2 im trying to install adobe premiere cs3

The Dimension 2400 is pretty old.
You may not have enough memory to install. Check to see what Adobe required by way of hard drive space, CPU speed, and memory.

I have no idea what sse2 is.

How can I edit adobe files?

If you're talking about a .PSD file, you can use Photoshop to open it up and edit it. However, if you mean an Adobe Acrobat file like a PDF, you'll need to use the program called "Adobe Acrobat." Otherwise, please specify which file format you're needing.

I want the seriol number for Adobe Creative Suite 5

Go to Adobes website and choose the version of Creative Suite you want and purchase it through them or a reseller. After you do that you will receive a serial number via email or included with your purchase. You could alternatively go to a store like Staples and purchase it there.

Have favorite publishing suite....easy and old....but now not compatible with my windows 7 system....what can i do to fix and have my new computer upload my cd: PrintMaster Gold Publishing suite Version...

  1. Open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.jpg, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Under Programs, click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows.

  2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.

CS3 suite refuses to re-install after latest update caused launch errors. Acrobat installs but all others fail with no explanation beyond "error".

Hi there,

Well it seems that your computer time stamp do not match with the CS3 licence time, so after upgrading the suite they cancel the licence of your CS3 suite. First of all you can please contact to adobe costumer care and ask them for your licence status.... please follow the below link to contact -

Please post comments for more help or information.....

Good Luck!!
