Hi, I downloaded latest Blender source-code and all necessary libraries on my WinXP 32-bit machine. I managed to successfully compile and build the code with CMake and VS2008. However when I run the program, it seems to be missing features, mainly no menus show up. When I download and install client (2.49) it looks ok. I have newest graphics card driver and all. Does anyone have an idea what might be the problem? I would appreciate it!
It's possible blender is not finding the python scripts directory correcly... when this happens the UI starts up pretty empty.
yeah, you must compile the project "INSTALL" in order to copy all files to the bin directory.
