H264VDecHPDll.dll and CPU support

Post by barftud »


I found a posting on another forum that indicated that H264VDecHPDll.dll could crash when running on a CPU that does not support SSE2 or SSE3 instruction sets. Can anyone confirm if this is the case?
I am running on an Athlon XP (which the packaging says is supported). I have just checked and this CPU does NOT support SSE2 or SSE3. Is this why VideoStudio is crashing on me any time I try to open a high def video?

Did you check on AMD's Website ? I checked my AMD Athlon 64 3200+ and it does support SSE, SSE1, SSE2 and SSE3.

I used to run it on my old computer that did not have those instruction sets and it worked.
