Yep, reckon so. SM 2.46 is working fine with my XP (SP2) which I use for the graphics programs that I have on it and also for testing my theme stuff on it.

if the AMD 3000+ processor is from the "Barton" or K7 series, then yes it's time to replace it (and also replacing the motherboard that uses those old CPUs). If the 3000+ CPU is of the AMD64 or K8 variety [aka. AMD Athlon 64 3000+], then no because that one does have SSE2 support and doesn't need to be changed.

any APPs [like SM 2.46] created from VS2015 (visual studio 2015) or greater will require any AMD/Intel CPU with at least SSE2 support. otherwise those apps will crash or not function on CPUs w/out SSE2.
