I will run a Blender course for teenagers in a few days time and we will be at a place that has no internet connection whatsoever. That means I will take with me all the files that the kids need to run Blender on their computers. Most of them have Windows I guess, a few have Mac OS X and none have Linux.
In the 2.49 Blender downloads it said “Requires Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, built with Python 2.6” (for the Windows downloads).
But in the 2.5.2 downloads it only says “Requires Windows XP/Vista/7” and Python is also not mentioned in the Readme file. But it does include a file called “Python31.zip” which seems to include a bunch of python scripts. What’s the deal with that?
So, do I still need to download Python separately? And therefore do I need to bring along this Python installer? I do not have any Windows system here where I could test this.
In the course I would like to use a recent Blender version, without the installer, just run it as is from the desktop so we will have the least installation trouble possible, so we can get passed the point quickly and start working in Blender.
Would be great, if somebody could help me with that!
