No, because it is not hardware. calc.exe needs hardware to execute DP instructions. You cannot compare software to hardware here. Only if you extended the meaning of "support" to "make use of", it might qualify. But this meaning would make no sense for hardware the other way around.

Edit: Additionally, calc.exe does not provide any kind of interface for executing DP instructions. The GUI is definitely not an interface for IEEE 754 numbers, not even in the programmer view.
