python problem

when i open up blender, the black command box thing says that no installed python was found. the thing is, is that i have installed python and it is working great. how do i get blender to read python, or can you use scripts in blender without it finding python?

Which version of Python do you have installed? The latest version of Blender is compiled to work with 2.5.

Also, have you properly set the Python path in your OS’s environment variables? Read here for more on this.
