Problems with Blender 2.59 Zip Archive Windows 32

Postby Jose_Manuel » Sun Aug 14, 2011 11:47 am

I've downloaded the latest version of Blender Blender 2.59 Zip archive Windows 32 bits, I unzip and execute Blender.exe, but I've got the following message:

ndof: dead zone set to 0.10
Info:Config directory with "startup.blend" file not found.
found bundle python: c:\Users\Usuario\Dise+-o\blender-2.59-windows32\2.59\python
Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: unable to load the file system codec
LookupError: no codec search functions registered: can't find encoding


It's happening with the latest versions of Blender, with Blender 2.57 I don't have this issue. I searched in Internet and I read other people who have the same problem, for example here there is a comment:
Bonsoir
Je rencontre ce probleme
Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: unable to load the file system codec
LookupError: no codec search functions registered: can't find encoding

What can I do to solve this problem and so work with this great program? My O.S. is Windows 7 34 bits. Thanks in advance. Regards

I've found the solution, the problem is the directory where Blender folder is situated, you can watch a spanish character: ñ (Diseño). The program is not able to find where the folder is situated. Regards.

found bundle python: c:\Users\Usuario\Dise+-o\blender-2.59-windows32\2.59\python

Good work figuring this out, Jose_Manuel! Maybe the current internationalization work being done as part of the Google Summer of Code will fix this. In the meantime, it will help others with a similar problem.

Is the local path case-sensitive?

This should depend on your platform. Unixy paths are case-sensitive. Windows paths are not, last I looked.
