Did you download the Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistribution Package?

yup is there a installer somwhere out there that is home made not on blender.org

I’d warn against 64 bit Blender. The BGE isn’t really good with it, and I’ve noticed some odd differences (like entire features that act differently or just don’t work). Just run 32 bit… it will run just as fast.

You don’t need special 64 bit apps for everything.

-Sam

wait so 32 bit things works with 64 bit?

NOOOOOOOOOO, I just said that to be an ass…

Yes. 32 bit apps work on 64 bit operating systems. Half of the applications you probably use are still 32 bit.

You could have easily just downloaded and installed 32 bit blender and seen it work.

Have fun!

thanks that helped alot :wink: now i can continue my tutorials

does anyone know why this happens?
PS im talking about the surounding picture. the outline is the starting picture


I think that is caused by Vistw, iv’e seen it on every vista comp i’ve used and never on any other comp. btw this is in the wrong forum.

@blending user, driver bug with the frontbuffer. Games dont use this so driver writers often only have this working correctly on their pro cards. (except for NVidia that generally work well)

YoFrankie was made using the BGE on 64bit linux without troubles. Possibly windows vista/64bit specific?

k so maybe be fixed in 2.5? anyways sorry for wrong place i was origanaly posting a update that i transfered from my old pc and i relized blender wasnt working corectly so i just posted here sorry if that didnt make since. P.S anyone can move or delete this forum i got the info i needed P.P.S Thanks for the help everyone

The outline around menus (and border select not showing) is due to Intel integrated graphics, as noted on the download page on blender.org

It says…
“Users with Intel on-board graphics: some graphics operations (menus or border select) don’t show due to driver bug.”

Now in Blender 2.5 (test build) which I have tested, it no longer has this problem. Hopefully the game engine wont crash as often either
