Blender for Windows 7 64 Bit???

Post by beeman » Sat Nov 07, 2009 5:35 am

I just got my new PC and am getting ready to install Windows 7. I want to install the 64 bit version, but it looks like Blender will not be supported. Any idea as to whether a 64-bit version for Windows is available?

I am running the 64 bit version in my Windows 7 64bit, no problems even though there is no installer, just unzip it to a folder and start it from there or drag a shortcut to where ever You want it. Just remember to get the 64 bit version of Python 2.6.x installed properly.

Blender for Windows 7 - 64 bit

Hi Jari,

I tried what you said should work, but when I try to run Blender I get this message:

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.

Python 64 bit installed successfully.

I have the same problem. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit and I have not installed Python. I have been trying to use the 2.49b in 64 bit and it says nothing about W7.

I put that MS Visual C++ thing on and Blender started right up! Hope this helps.

I've installed it Win7 64 after installed Python and it's running even though I'm a real noob on Blender. :)
