help on blender/python

help on this thing?

message from console:

Compiled with Python version 2.6.2.
‘import site’ failed; use -v for traceback
Checking for installed Python… No installed Python found.
Only built-in modules are available. Some scripts may not run.
Continuing happily.

running win7 x64; with beldner x86 2.49b and python 2.6.6final

Blender ships with a subset of Python, but can use the whole Python suite if it finds it installed. This is just a harmless message to inform you that it didn’t find a full Python install it can use on your system and it is using the built in subset.

As far as I know, all Python scripts that come with Blender will run with the built in Python.

There may be external Python scripts which you might download and run manually that might need a full Python install, so in that case you would have to install it. As the message says, you would need Python version 2.6.2 (I believe any 2.6.x should work). I don’t know about Win7, I’m on Linux, but I think if you use a 64Bit Blender, you also would need a 64Bit Python, or both need to be 32Bit. Somebody else who knows more about Win7 hopefully will chip in if I’m telling nonsense :).

EDIT: Oh! I just saw you already have Python, and a 32Bit Blender. So, might that be because the bitness of Blender and Python don’t match? If they match, I’ve no Idea what’s wrong.

both are 32bit



The solution was to add Python to the Environment Variable, “Path”

no that was not it.

I had to add the variable:
