Windows 7: Python and Blender

02 Feb 2009   #1

Windows 7 Beta
Python and Blender

I'm having a problem installing python and blender. I install python for windows through the MSI file provided by (2.6.1 and 3.0). I then install Blender (2.48). When i fire up blender it gives me this mesege.

Checking for installed Python... No installed Python Found.
Only built-in modules are available. Some scripts may not run.
So i go and check my environment vars and ofcorse the PYTHONPATH var is missing. so i set it up

Still nothing

I tryed again with python 2.6
Uninstalled everything, re-installed everything, setup the environment vars again.

and now i get

Checking for installed Python... C:\Python26\lib\ Warning: 'with' will become a reserved keyword in Python 2.6
No installed Python found.
Only built-in modules are available. Some scripts may not run.

I think you did everything right. For me a practical solution was to install Python 2.5.2 besides the 2.6 installation. After you've done this, all you have to do is change the PATHs from PYTHON26 to PYTHON25 (also LIB etc.).
This worked for me in Vista 64x, but I think this is not a specific Windows 7 problem. I guess Blender2.48 just doesn't like newer versions of PYTHON. Let us see which version Blender 2.49 will use.

Windows 7


I´ve been using Python 2.6 on windows 7 starter a coupple of weeks. Then all of the sudden its start to giving me this message saying something about a "Socket Error.... no connection .. target computer refuse..."
and another message at the same time saying " IDLE´s subprocess didn´t make connection... can´t start a subprocess or personal firewall blocking the connection.."

The strange thing is that I've been using python for some days and I havn't done any changing....

Somebody knows anything about this....?
