Same as the SumatraPDF port - exception c000001d

It appears Both SumatraPDF & Audacity don't like non-SSE2 processors..

SumatraPDF v.3.0 works fine here, as does Audacity v.2.0.3

The building guide for Audacity suggests MSVC 2017, didn't that come with a default setting to enforce SSE2 optimisation?

Sumatra PDF 3.3 Ported by Barcode 

http://www.filedropper.com/testpdf2

 

On my Windows XP SP3 Posready system: this v3.3 cannot show the toolbar + the document tabs are all white and show no document title?

v3.1.2 works fine for me.

Out uBlock Origin Legacy v.1.16.4.22 (July 4, 2020)

... which, sadly, removes support for Pale Moon 27 based forks, like @roytam1's New Moon 27.x.x (whose sse builds are very popular with our members running pre-SSE2 CPUs):

MSFN members who use these versions of the Roytam1 browsers can also use AdBlock Latitude which is compatible with version 27:

... That's good to know... :)

 I have not ever been myself a user of ABL or other members of the AB family of content blockers, last thing I remember reading was how much more resource-greedy they were compared to uB0 (and RAM/CPU consumption should always be a consideration on those old hardware setups where NM27-sse is being deployed...). Resources-usage aside, the crux of the matter here is the following question:

Does current ABL address successfully the very issues/reasons that forced uB0 to drop PM27 support?

 As detailed in the previously linked GitHub PR comment, uB0-legacy now needs ES6 support in the browser itself to tackle the removal of certain classes of unwanted content ; does ABL handle such content in a different way?  If not, then existing users of uB0-legacy 1.16.4.21 in NM27 should probably stay put at that version (sadly no longer updating :() and face some random/occasional breakage in their ad-removal... It'd be like Chrome 49 users on XP/Vista, who are now confined in using uB0 v1.16.18 for good...

Unless something new crops up?
