The hard disk of my Windows XP computer have two partitions, C: drive (Where windows installed) and D: drive. I installed Python in D: drive. When I start Blender, the console window showed “No installed python found.”
Setting the PYTHONPATH system variable does not solve my problem. The console window of Blender showed that Blender is compiled using Python 2.4. But I installed Python 2.5 instead of version 2.4. Do I need to uninstall Python 2.5 and install Python 2.4?
Don’t know if this will help or not, but I read on the official Blender site, (sorry, can’t remember exactly where), that this error message is actually a bug. If you got the bundle with Python included, you should not experience any problems in the modeling environment.
I had the problem that Python24 was aleady installed and Blender was not recognizing after the reinstallation of Window XP. What i did, i installed Python in c:\Python24 directory and then opened Blender.242a. Now it is recognizing…
Although it is still true that I read this was a bug, I will back up Mariano’s advice, as I was having trouble with Python, as well, but downloaded 2.4 and installed it onto my C: drive, and now I am no longer getting the error! You can download it here: http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.4.4/
