I just installed Blender 2.45 (I’m not interested in upgrading to 2.48, please don’t ask unless it’s required to fix the problem). I use Windows XP Pro.
I have two issues. The first is that the GUI doesn’t seem to repaint properly. I’ll get squares forming, or menus won’t disappear entirely at first. Typically, this only lasts until I move the mouse some, or click on something, and then it goes away, only to be replaced by another…glitch. I’ve had this problem with every version of Blender I can remember. Is it just something I need to deal with? Could it be graphics card related?
The second problem I have is that with my recently installed Blender 2.45 install. I tells me I need to have python 2.5 installed to even run the program, which is fine. The problem is I have Python 3.0 installed. Anything I can do to correct this, or should I uninstall 3.0 and install 2.5?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
