…the shocking ignorance of a n00b? I tried reading some of the other threads to see if I could find an answer, but I didn’t see anything that was similar, so here goes (please bear with me). I downloaded 2.48 for the first time (for a machine running WinD’OHs 2000, for reasons beyond my control). I was given a prompt that said I needed to download Python, as I didn’t have it installed, and a link to python.org. I clicked the link, followed the instructions, downloaded and installed Python. Well, when I went to start Blender, I got the following message:
OK, what did I do wrong? When I go to my program files on my hard drive, Python is there.
Did I download the wrong version? Please forgive my ignorance, and also please forgive me if I missed the answer here somewhere.
I appreciate any help I can get.
Oh and if this is posted in the wrong section, I throw myself on the mercy of the moderators and humbly ask one of them to put it in the correct place.
