Error: SIMD vector types not supported on this platform
Which SSE version is required? My processor is a Core2Duo with 
SSE2 and is apparently not supported. Surely a mainstream version 
with an older version of SSE should be able to use the sub-set of 
SSE instructions it supports?

I'm using the recently released DMD2 version 2.060.

SIMD operations are not supported for Windows at the moment,
I think. Of course, if you're running Linux, ignore this answer.

Oh, my...

What about in next version 2.061? On Win32 or Win64 (XP, Win7, 
WIn8)?

You can use them now with GDC. You can download Windows binaries 
at https://bitbucket.org/goshawk/gdc/downloads .

It's has some dependencies that is hard to find.
What about dmd?

You need to download this file (it's an installer for tdm gcc 
4.6.1):

http://sourceforge.net/projects/tdm-gcc/files/TDM-GCC%20Installer/Previous/1.1006.0/tdm64-gcc-4.6.1.exe/download

run it, and install mingw-w64. After that you need to download 
the most recent binary package of GDC from here:

https://bitbucket.org/goshawk/gdc/downloads/gcc-4.6.1-tdm64-1-gdc-20121117-D2.060.7z

and extract it inside the directory where you have installed 
mingw-w64, replacing any existing files with the same name. That 
has always worked for me.

I don't know when dmd on windows will get SIMD support.

I have checked windows 64 bit dmd alpha now and it already 
supports SIMD.
