Problem:

Beginning with Visual Studio 2003, Microsoft added support for certain SSE intrinsics into its C language implementation.  SSE is a set of additional instructions for the Pentium CPU line (and the AMD CPU line) added to enable better floating point processing.  The language intrinsics for SSE map directly to the additional SSE instructions available for these CPU’s. 

Resolution:

Because Dev Partner Studio works at a low level with the OS and any executable which is being tested, the results of attempting to use memory analysis on code compiled with SSE intrinsics is unpredictable.  Such a configuration is unsupported.
