Arnold Error 1114 on Startup. CPU to old? (Supports SSE 4.2)

Hello,
I have a problem with Arnold MaxtoA 4.3.1.20. I'll get a couple of Error 1114 Mesages, and once Max GUI is there, some Max Script Messages. Is it because the CPU is too old?

(Tried to render a project onan old gaming PC I had around, because I need my laptop for other work right now) The CPU is an Intel Core2Quad, I bought around 2006, and the GPU is a GTX970 (MSI). I thought this should work, and I don't care much about the render speed, I just need to outsource this to free my Laptop.

Everything was updated on April 4th, 2021. Did uinstall everything, and reinstalled.

.Net 4.8

C++ 2015-2019
Nvidia Drivers 465.89
3DS Max 2019 all updates
MaxtoA 4.3.1.20



I did a scan with the suggested coreinfo tool, and it reports that the CPU supports SSE 4.2

Attached are the Error Messages; Coreinfo Log and Nvidia Drivers log.

Thanks for any insights and help.

It looks like your CPU does not support SSE4.1. Notice how it doesn't have an asterisk on the SSE4.1 line or any of the newer instructions. The AVX-512-F, for instance, did not exist in 2006. The fairly modern CPUs that I use don't even support that, so that is a good indication that the * is needed.

OK, makes perfect sense... I mean the CPU is 15 years old.
Let's blame it on coreinfo then, being bad at communicating info ;)
colors would help - or a yes /no appendix.


Thanks everyone. I'll get a new gaming PC then.

This is most likely a missing DLL dependency.

You could use Dependency Walker to check.

In this [noisy] screenshot, I've highlighted what to check:

Thank you for this helpful reply. I ran a test in dependency walker, and it turned out as expected, Got these error messages:
Error: At least one required implicit or forwarded dependency was not found.
Error: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing export function in an implicitly dependent module.
Error: A circular dependency was detected.
Warning: At least one delay-load dependency module was not found.
Warning: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing export function in a delay-load dependent module.


th API-WIN DLLS where missing, and also the Max Dll's.

But I checked, and they are in the Max folder, same goes for the Arnold files. Everything is where it should be. *scratches head*
