I just installed Premiere Pro from the Adobe Video Collection that I just opened...and whaddya know, it doesn't work. I get an error when I try to run it. I looked up the error in Adobe's support information only to find that my CPU is too old to support it. It requires SSE compatibility, which was added in the Athlon XP (or Pentium III). My Athlon is an earlier model, so it doesn't have it. :(

I was going to hold off on upgrading my computer for awhile longer, but now it seems I am going to be forced to do so--else this rather expensive purchase will just sit and gather dust. And to think I just got dual monitor support setup just for this occasion. I think I can get away with only a motherboard, processor, and memory.

I'm not sure if the Athlon XP and the Athlon I have (which is a socket variety, not a cartridge's not *that* old, although I do have another machine with a first-gen cartridge Athlon) have compatible sockets to where I can just swap processor only on my computer as it stands. That might be a good temporary solution if it would work. I shall investigate further *after* I get this project I'm working on (had to reinstall Premiere 5 since I can't use Premiere Pro) done.
