Just purchased your photoplus x4, and cannot install it. Im using a Dell dimensions 1100, with XP, and service pack 3, which supports UDF and PDF file formats. All of my drivers are current and up todate....


The Latest version of this software is X8. Are you using 4 because you have XP. You should really upgrade to Win 8 or 10 to get the support and AV cover from M$.

However, I have two suggestions.

1 is to use compatibility mode
2 is try and load it in Safe Mode

Make sure you have AV turned of if you have any.

Finally, you realize we are Fixya, a self help website, and nothing to do with Serif and this software. You wrote "I purchased YOUR photoplus". Here is the forums for Serif and the software. For some reason, they provide no support themselves.

I wanna to free download Microsoft Word 2007


The only way you can get a free copy of MS Word is with the MS Office 2010 Beta. Note that this will expire sometime in the future though. You can go to the following address for the download. http://www.microsoft.com/office/2010/en/default.aspx

Another option is to download Open Office which is free and has a great MS Word compatible word processor. (Really it is good. I slightly prefer Word 2003, but Open Office is better than Word 2010). You can download this from: http://www.openoffice.org/ A version of Open Office also exists that does not need to be installed on your computer, and can even run direct from a thumb drive.

Good Luck

I cannot install my autocad 2010 because it says that my processor is not sse2 compliant. is there a way to install it for free?


Hi

I'm sorry you can not use the program with your old computer, the requirements are.

  • Intel® Pentium® 4 or AMD Athlon® dual-core processor, 1.6 GHz or higher with SSE2 technology
  • 2 GB RAM

If your processor does not have SSe2 technology support, it is too old to run the program, buy a new machine. Or use a older version of autocad. your computer must be around 5 or 10 years old or more. SSE2 has been around since 2003.

SSE2 CPU Support Requirement for AutoCAD 2010 I will try to not geek out and confuse you on this post. With AutoCAD 2010 there is an AutoCAD 2010 System Requirement to have a CPU (essentially the computer’s brain) with SSE2 support. SSE2 is an Intel CPU instruction set (SIMD Extension 2) which is essentially technology to replace the old MMX extensions which are half as slow in many data and math operations. Most current systems will support SSE2 except an old AMD CPU system over 6 years old. AMD Opteron, Athlon 64 both support SSE2 and have since 2003.

So why SSE2 requirement in AutoCAD 2010:

In developing software there is a limit on how old of technology you can effectively support without impacting current hardware and software users. In the case of AutoCAD 2010 adding the SSE2 requirement this increases performance for customers using current hardware. Many areas improve in AutoCAD such as OSNAPs.
I said I would not geek out so I will not go into details on floats, floating point, and registers. Your experience may vary but the change was made for some performance benefit of current hardware.

Bottom Line: Increasing performance is a good thing!

End Quote.

Trying to load elements of CS3 and get error ERROR ''NEED SUPPORT FOR CPU EXTENSION SSE2''


Hi,

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do about this. Your processor is quite old, and as a result doesn't come with SSE2 built in, which is an instruction set that helps the CPU process data at a faster rate.

Your only option is to purchase a CPU that has SSE2 built in for you to be able to use that program.

Hope I clarified things

I need to run Autocad 2010 on my computer but it won't even instal because I have an AMD 3000+ 2Ghz processor. Is it possible to upgrade the processor without buying a whole new computer?


Autocad 2010 needs SSE2 to run.
The only Semprons which didn't have SSE2 are those for socket A, so I assume you're running a socket A mainboard. I checked and there are no socket A processors that support SSE2 unfortunately.

I think that you could replace your mainboard and the cpu cheaply witha a socket 754 mainboard (which supports SSE2 CPUs and should run with your old ram).

However I advise to upgrade to newer system with AM2 socket or so - they aren't expensive and the increase in performance in power-hungry applications such as AutoCad will be noticeable.

Changing a cpu on a compaq 5000T/REM


Hello,
I've located this description when installing the pentium 4 processor on Windows XP. If you have not performed these steps this may be the cause of what you are experiencing. To save you time I've pasted the section below--> Operating System Support
Nearly all modern operating systems designed for the Intel Architecture have support for the Pentium 4 processor, although some may require specific versions or processor support files. Many Microsoft operating systems like Windows* 98 SE, Windows NT* 4 with Service Pack 5, Windows* 2000, Windows* ME, and Windows* XP support the Pentium 4 processor. Linux* distributions based on the Linux* 2.4 core support the processor. Also, many other vendors have support for the Pentium 4 Processor in their operating systems. System integrators should verify that the operating system they have selected supports the Pentium 4 processor.

Note: Windows XP or certain versions of Linux are required for Hyper-Threading Technology2 support for the Pentium 4 processor. For additional information on integrating systems based on the Pentium 4 processor supporting Hyper-Threading Technology, refer to the Integration Overview for Systems Based on the Intel Pentium 4 Processor Supporting Hyper-Threading Technology.

All operating systems that support the SSE instructions that were first introduced with the Intel® Pentium III processor will also support the SSE2 instructions introduced with the Pentium 4 processor. To experience the power of the SSE2 instructions, it is critical that system integrators install drivers and software that have been optimized for the Pentium 4 processor's SSE2 instructions. For example, for maximum system performance, system integrators using Microsoft operating systems that support DirectX* should load DirectX 8 (or higher).

Software Optimization
With specific drivers that use the SSE2 instructions, graphics accelerators, audio hardware and software, and other system resources can experience substantial performance gain. It is critical that systems also use APIs that use SSE2 instructions to achieve maximum performance. Two examples are Microsoft's DirectX 8 (or higher) and Open GL 1.2 (or higher). Most major graphics accelerator vendors have optimized drivers that use the SSE2 instructions. Graphics card vendors typically highlight support changes with new driver releases. Download and install the latest drivers (dated later than October 2000) from the vendor's Web site. Also, verify that the driver version contains optimization for the Pentium 4 processor.

Many applications also use the SSE2 instructions to experience the breakthrough performance of the Pentium 4 processor. System integrators should contact software vendors to verify support and determine version information.

System performance is greatly affected by proper operating system and driver installation processes. For example, it is important to install the latest Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility immediately after installing most Microsoft operating systems to ensure proper drivers for the chipset are installed prior to installation of other drivers. System integrators should confirm boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor-based systems are optimally configured and integrated.

Conclusion
Boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor-based systems require proper integration. System integrators that follow the guidelines in this document will experience higher customer satisfaction by providing higher quality systems. 


Please let me know if you have success with this.
Thank You, Raph30

SSE2 instruction set is a new set of instructions that has been built into the processor chips usually to enhance the performance of the computer. If you are using an older computer/processor, (possibly manufactured before 2001, when the SSE2 was introduced) you may not be able to install the applications that require the SSE2 instruction set on your computer.

It is most certainly. SSE2 was introduced with the Pentium 4 and all AMD Athlon 64's have it.
