my scripts work fine on Intel, broken on AMD

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have a collection of scripts I wrote which automate some repetitive functions. They were developed on a 32bit Intel processor computer, and always work fine when I run them on other Intel computers, but when I run them on a computer with an AMD64 processor, they don't work

now a little clarification, they are all actually running on a 32bit windows xp virtual machine under VMware, and they work fine as long as the host box has an Intel cpu (32bit or 64bit intels work fine). Anyone encountered anything like this ? Sometimes the scripts work under vmware XP on AMD hosts, they just take an extremely longer amount of time for each step, or sometimes they just do not work at all.

the scripts are basically utilizing the functions of Pixelgetcolor(), Pixelchecksum(), MouseClick(), some loops and not a lot else. This has been a problem for years for me and I've just told my co-workers "sorry, get an Intel cpu if you want to run my scripts" but we have some new people and they are all running AMD machines and I'd like to know why my scripts dont work on AMD cpus

Hi.

What do you expect for an answer without posting some code? ;)

And what exactly doesnt work ? You need to test a little bit and

isolate what part of your code works on Intel and what doesnt work

on AMD . Personally i think this should not be CPU related .

I got a similar problem with my screensaver. On AMD cpu pc the drawing was different than on Intel cpu. Probably division with 0 is handled differently.
