But he's not interested in the answer to that question, because he doesn't have it built on a Core 2 Duo machine. He has it built on an i7 machine, and now wants to install it on a Core 2 Duo machine without building it again. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if that's realistic, given the prior discussion in this thread.
