first time installing blender...but error?

Hello,

I’m new to the whole 3d animation thing, and i found blender. After installing blender, and executing it for the first time, i get this message in a seperate dos window:

Using Python version 2.4
‘import site’ failed; use -v for traceback

After closing the window, blender closes too. Has anyone had this problem before? If so, what can I do to fix it.

Don’t worry about the ‘error’. It is a warning.

Do NOT close the window. Blender likes to have it around.

ok thanks hehe

the error just means that you do not have python (programming language) installed on your system. it’s no problem, because blender works fine without it.
