sample_encode runs successfully without the -hw switch, but returnsMFX_ERR_UNSUPPORTED when I provide the -hw switch.I've read related posts athttp://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/showthread.php?t=104734&o=a&s=lrhttp://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/showthread.php?t=104506&o=a&s=lrhttp://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/showthread.php?t=103408&o=a&s=lrThey leave with with a few major questions:1) My final target is a specific i7 Sandy Bridge processor, i7-3612QE, running 64-bit Win 7 SP1. I have read that this cpu has specific instructions to help accelerate video processing. Does the -hw switch try to use these instructions, or is it using something else, like the graphics card (that I don't have, given that I'm sending the result out WiFi)?2) For the time being, I'm developing on the desktop rather than the embedded i7 Sandy Bridge. Computer / Properties tells me I'm on an i7-2600 (3.40 GHz) running 64-bit Win 7 SP1. So, same OS but different processor. Does THIS cpu have the the accleration as well, and will the -hw switch cause it to be used?3) If I develop (including debug and test) on my i7-2600 desktop and then install that on the i7-3612QE, will I be using the same DLL and have similar runtime configuration needs?4) When I look for[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Intel\\MediaSDK\\Dispatch\\hw64-s1-1] the tree stops at[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Intel\\MediaSDK]. There is no "Dispatch" node, and the only thing inside the MediaSDK node is (Default) and a 3.5.811.41085 folder, that in turn contain only (Default), APIVersion, and InstallDir.Thanks very much for your help.
