How do I find out if a machine has SSE2 technology? I can't find that information for computers on Google, and my PC here won't install AutoCAD because it doesn't have this.
... but can't you go to Control Panel and remove it?
SSE2 are instructions built into the processor. I think any Pentium 4 or Dual core is going to have SSE2.
Mine's an old AMD dual core and it's definitely not working. Hopefully I can find something around and something reasonable. i don't even know what the file will look like once I get a new machine.
ok. Currently I don't need that because it simply won't install. The problem is that I would be looking at getting a new machine and I don't think they'll let me install that on all their demos.
Even then, I have no idea if my CAD file will open properly.
Ideally I'd like a way to open my file and export it to something I can open in Maya, but haven't found a solution yet.
Just make sure your PC and AutoCAD are both the same bits (32 or 64)
CPUs supporting SSE2
So unless you're buy a computer from some guy standing ot the corner selling them out of his van you should be ok with any from the major stores/retailers.
I spoke to Dell and they told me I could not get SSE2 compliant from Best Buy. They basically said that no consumer PC would have this, and I would have to special order.
