Finally, something works!!
http://www.ai.fh-erfurt.de/mitarbeiter-innen/professorinnen/dr-paul-grimm/gdv/ar-blender/ AR Blender. Google it if the link is too long.
As I am testing scripts I cringed at the idea of setting python path, using old blender, something I thought I had done away with, and how would it affect the other python and blender installs?
Bring on AR Blender, been sitting idle on my comp for a long time.
Opened it up and to my surprise Using Python version 2.3 appeared!
Clever people have the full python 2.3 installed with AR Blender.
There must be a .dll or a script included that makes blender find Python in it’s own directories.
So I installed a fresh Blender 2.37a then proceeded to copy the extra files from AR Blender (not the executable) to my new install.
Yes it worked. Using Python version 2.3, standard Blender 2.37a.
Python 2.3 isn’t installed on my comp. Sure is recognized in Blender!
How this has been acheived should really be looked at by someone.
It appears this has been done with Blender 2.41 and Python 2.4 also.
I should note that AR Blender is pretty cool by itself too!
Blender with a full Python install from a flash stick anyone!
42.6meg is a small price to pay.
