Problems with Python


When I start up Blender, in the little black box that shows up, I get:

“Compiled with Python version 2.4.
‘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.”

What can I do about this? When I downloaded Blender, all I got was a set up and when I went through the process, it only gave me a .exe.

It’s only Blender warning you that Python is not installed. You can leave it as it is, though some scripts may not run, just as it says, or you can download and install Python.

Would you mind telling me what I wouldn’t have access to?

I know Blender has a particle system, which I have plans for. Will this inhibit that? If so, I will get Python.

Hell, I think I’m getting it anyways. >.>

Blender’s built-in features will work, as they don’t make use of Python. However, there are lots and lots of Python scripts (some are bundled with Blender itself) that add/extend features, that you may find useful. So, sure, go ahead and install it.
