On which Computer have you tried to run Renoise? The CPU model is the most important detail.
On some AMD CPUs you can enable the SSE support via some tools, but if its a very old CPU/Computer you might not get Renoise running at all. Renoise requires a relative modern CPU, thus wont run on all available CPUs…
I found the A4SSE file while searching for a solution, I downloaded it, unzip it and run it … but it just open a Dos windows that disapear 1 second after .
I tried to reinstall Renoise after that but got the same error message .
Did I made something wrong ? ? ? ( Or am I just too dumb to use it correctly ? )
Anyway I think I’ll try to bring a laptop at my friend’s house the next time, but it’s better if there is a solution to make it work on his computer.
that statement is pretty vague, since there are two different kinds of AMD processors that come into question:
AMD Athlon 1.4Ghz, Thunderbird Core, NO SSE
AMD Athlon XP 1.4Ghz, Palomino Core, SSE supported
If your athlon is equipped with the “thunderbird core”, then there’s no tool on earth that will make renoise 1.8 or greater run on your machine.
But given the fact that the manufacturing of the CPU has been halted in 2001 it’s passable to not support it anymore in nowadays software.
if i may give the hint:
You can get a complete PC for around 100 EUR (2nd hand) which is at least twice as fast and feature rich as yours.
Ok, after few try it seems this computer is too shitty to run Renoise (and to support SSE)…At least i’ve try … :’(
Guess my friend’ll have to buy a new PC, he can’t continue to live without Renoise !!! It’s too inhuman !
Meanwhile I’ll use the 1.5.2 version
Anyway, thx a lot for the quick help ! Really apreaciated !
