I’ve been stuck in Blender 2.63 for awhile now. When 2.64 came out awhile back, I tried to upgrade, but when I did, Blender would crash on startup. So I’ve been living with 2.63 and now that 2.68a is out I figured I’d try again, but I get the same problem. The error message is:
“This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way”
When I go to install the MS Visual C++ Redistributable from the link and per the instructions on the download page, my system tells me it is already installed.
I’m wondering if anybody knows the most likely reason(s) why Blender versions up till 2.63a will install and run well on my machine, but 2.64 and 2.68a will not? I understand there are many possibilities, but if anyone knows of any common issues for this situation, I could start my troubleshooting there.
3.07GHz Intel Core i7 machine running Windows 7 Pro (v 6.1.7601 SP1)
NVIDIA Quadro FX 580, 512MB RAM
Any and all help appreciated. I’d love to be able to check out the latest & greatest Blender version!
Thank you to all,
