Bah, you didn't state you were running Win95 again.

Client: Included in Windows XP, Windows 2000 Professional, and Windows NT Workstation 4.0.

iirc you need to use the old inline asm (cribbed from MAME):

Code:
CGLOBAL cpuid
cpuid:
	push	ebx
	push	ecx
	push	edx

	mov		eax,0

	;// attempt to change the ID flag
	pushfd
	pop		edx
	xor		edx,1<<21
	push	edx
	popfd

	;// if we can't, they definitely don't have any of these things
	pushfd
	pop		ebx
	xor		edx,ebx
	test	edx,1<<21
	jnz		.Return

	;// use CPUID
	mov		eax,1
	cpuid
	mov		eax, edx

.Return:
	pop		edx
	pop		ecx
	pop		ebx
	ret
Then:
UINT32 features = cpuid();
use_mmx = (features & (1 << 23));
use_sse = (features & (1 << 25));
use_sse2 = (features & (1 << 26));

hmm.. WinUAE does not use isProcessorFeaturePresent().

I think MSVS Net 2003 does have different init routines than 2002 or something like that (R8 was compiled with 2003)

Does this message only appear under Windows 95?

Ack, I know Win95 is no longer supported but for 2003 to create binaries that won't run on it seems to be a bit bastardish!

Some googling revealed that IsProcessorFeaturePresent() is "supported" (exists but does not do anything) in Windows 98 and ME.

Unfortunately it seems Windows 95 can't be supported anymore.

Me thinks its time for SOME people to actually upgrade to an OS that actually runs something, like 98.

PLEASE...... people actually use W95 still ?

I'm using it from work as we speak.

I hate it though, with a passion.

And WhiteB, you a fan of the B52's? I know Rock Lobster is one of their songs.

Just what sort of IT manager would allow such a crap "os" to be used these days?
Unless your job is compatibility testing

Let's just say I work for a company that is in the public sector.

You try and get anything done or moving and you suffocate in red tape.

Seriously, any little bit of forward thinking you have comes with 76 obstacles in the way

VS .NET 2003 is NOT to blame!

I spent most of today figuring this one out. I reinstalled VS6 (alongside VS7.1) and compiled R8. Did it resolve the Win95 problem? Nope!

@Toni: If DirectX 8.0a is the absolute latest DirectX for Win95 users, why are we using D3DX9 interfaces for the "Filter"?

Windows 95 compatible binaries are in the Zone. I couldn't be bothered changing the interfaces so D3D filtering is absent from these builds.

Try reading beta changelogs..
Run WinUAE in DX8 D3D fullscreen mode and press F12...
Check also DX9 SDK for SetDialogBoxMode.

Ah, Rightio. Well, the DX9 SDK is your culprit anyways.

So could you manually load the library and import the functions you need?

Then you could handle DX8 if that's all that is present.
