I have installed Python 2.6.2 at C:\Python26 and added "C:\Python26\;C:\Python26\scripts\;" to the Windows Path Environment Variable.
Also, Blender is installed with default settings.
When I double click the Blender icon on my Desktop, it opens a console saying:
Code: Select all
Compiled with Python version 2.6.2. Checking for installed Python... got it!
Just out of curiosity, does Blender have anything to do with the .NET Framework?
