If you get this error, your CPU (processor) does not pass the system requirments of Adobe Premier Elements 4. For a list of CPUs supporting SSE2, check out this link:

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

Adobe premier elements 7 won't load into my computer


Sorry so late I have been away. Yes that error message is tell you that you processor does not have the feature you need. Now you could check to see if you can upgrade your processor but if you are looking to get into video editing it might be a good idea to look for another computer. I'm not a video gurru but I will tell you what I do know, you proccessing power is a necessity and you HD space is also an necessary. Your ram shouldn't be no less that 2gigs; I would go for 4gigs myself. Your video card is a must 512 or higher and I would go with Invidia, good Gforce card if you can afford it go with the video rendering cards where you can put to together, a little more costly but it's great performance.
That's all the info I have on this, oh do a Dell XPS, or a hmm... I would do Dell.

Installing adobe premiere elements 7


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.

Adobe Premier Elemnts 3.0


This is most often caused by one of two things;
1. Out of Date Audio Driver
2. Old version of Quicktime

Update your audio driver and install the most current version of Quicktime, that should solve your problem.
