I am running Windows Vista 64bit. I downloaded the zip file for Blender 2.49, and after fixing the “side-byside configuration” problemBlender started fine. But in the command prompt window that pops up when you start blender it says:
Compiled with Python 2.6.1
‘import site’ failed; use -v for traceback
checking for installed python…no installed python found.
Only built-in modules are available. Some scripts may noot run.
So far I have downloaded Python 2.5.2 and 2.6.1 and neither work. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
