CAN'T INSTALL BLENDER IN WINDOWS 2000 SP4

Postby entremuros » Tue May 13, 2008 1:37 am

Hi!

I'm trying to install Blender 2.45 (32 bits) in windows 2000 SP4 but somehow there is a problem. After the installation, I try to open the program but instead a message appears :

blender.exe - Unable To Locate DLL

The dynamic link library MSVCR71.dll could not be found in the specified path C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender;.;C:\WINNT\system32;C:\WINNT\system;C:\WINNT\system32;C:\WINNT;C:\WINNT\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files|Estsoft\ALZip;C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\Program Files\ESTsoft\ALZip.


Can anyone help me, please?

Install Python 2.5 (http://www.python.org) and you should be fine.

It's just simple as that?

I just have to install it? There's no need of doing something with it?

The Python 2.5 installer comes with the dll. Since Blender uses Python as scripting language, and you may one day want to use scripts that require a full python install anyway, I think it's best to do that right now.

If after install Blender still can't find the dll,you should be able to locate it from the installation of Python (C:\Python25 by default), and copy it to C:\Windows\System32
