Blender 3.0 on Windows 7

Hello. Has anyone managed to run blender 3 under windows 7?
Version 2.93 could be run by following the information below, but version 3.0 no longer works.

Thanks for any advice.

I did, just follow this link . On Right side on screen you will see “Releases”, click on release number and download full Blender (zip file) it will work on Win 7.

Some guy on this link, did this support - for Win 7.
Maybe and later versions will be supported too on that link.



is there any way to get the Steam release of blender working again? swapping the dlls worked back during 2.93

edit: i just swapped all the loose files in steam’s blender directory with the loose ones in the zip, seems to work, time will tell if it holds up in the long run haha

I think no. It’s not just about dlls, this is different way to support Blender v3.0 on Win 7.

Edit: I’m glad that you succeeded. Seems, that can work on this way too…hahaha.
