I just downloaded the Blender application and received this error message?
Using Python version 2.4
‘import site’ failed: use -v for traceback
Blender seems to have loaded properly but won’t really know until I get more familiar with it.
It means that Blender cannot find python on your computer. You must install python. If you have already done this, or are going to do this, you must then set your python path, assuming you are on windows. See the directions in the python and plugins forums for doing this (its a sticky at the top of the forum).
Good Luck, and Happy Blendering!
I would just like to add that I have been using Blender for a couple of years now, and mine still says that, jetX. It is not required to install python.
Python is only required if you need to use more advanced scripts.
