Windows installers fixed – call for testers

I’ve been working on the installers for Blender over the past few days, and I think I’ve finally nailed it. I’ve uploaded them on Graphicall.org, so head over there, grab your copy and test the installer.

Please post results (both positive and negative) in the comments. Thanks!

Enjoy,

  1. It is me, or when I create a new mesh after another, and moving it, it moves also the previous created mesh, like they’re linked…?

    OS: Windows 7 x64

    • Hi Paul
      This is because you havent gone back into object mode from edit mode to add the new mesh. adding a mesh to a scene whilst another is in edit mode will result in the two becoming joined.
      Hope this helps.

  2. ****FOR x64 Blender Installer****

    Core i7
    Windows 7 x64
    ****Uninstaller Doesn’t Remove All The Traces Like From Start Menu & Also Doesn’t Remove Root Folder****

    Installation shouldn’t install in Program Files(x86)…It should install in Program Files…By Default…

    Otherwise Great Job…

  3. One more thing…
    during installation…i see installer creates temp folder in “C:\ Drive”…problem is when the installer is done…files are copied out of temp folder into main “C:\ Drive”….

    following are the SOME file names..
    eula.1028(Many other eula.####…Txt files..)…
    globdata
    install
    install.res.1028.dll(Many other install.res.####.dll)
    VC_RED
    vcredist
    (24 Total)
    also uninstall didn’t remove these files..

    Link to eula.####.txt(all of them have same txt..)

    im guessing ur using vb 9.0 beta…
    ……………………………………………………….
    btw it could be my particular computer too…because i do use vb but not vb 9 beta…like it talks about in text file..
    ————–

    please reply & let me know if its real issue or its my computer…

  4. Thanks to all who tested! A few minor glitches have been found, but nothing that holds back from actually using this for the Beta release.

    I’ve already fixed the problem of Blender (64bit) being installed by default to Program Files (x86) instead of Program Files.

    Other fixes I’ll apply soon.
