Win XP x64 and multiple Python installation

High guys!:smiley:

I got problem with Python and Blender 2.48a. I know it’s well documented, but everything I tried didn’t work at all.

So here it is: I have on my computer 3 Python versions (2.5.2, 2.6, 3.0). I need all these because of other programs I got.

Like the doc & forums said, I made my Env. Variable called PYTHONPATH with the paths pointing to my C:\python25 directory/libs and rebooted. It didn’t work, so I re-installed Blender 2.48a, and didn’t work too. I’m a bit ignorant, so I don’t know what to do next.

If someone have an idea …

Thanks a lot for your time, I appreciate,:wink:


If you installed the 32-bit version of Blender you need the 32-bit version of Python 2.5.2. If you installed the 64bit version, then you need the 64-bit version of Python.


The value of PYTHONHOME (not PYTHONPATH) should be C:\Python25 not a subdirectory inside it.

Nice, thanks a lot Nathan, re-installing with 2.5.4 x64 made the trick! :smiley: Have a nice day guys!
