Windows 11 & Building Blender
Following these directions: Building Blender/Windows - Blender Developer Wiki
a) cd C:\Users\myuser\Documents\Develop\Blender
b) mkdir blender
c) git clone git://git.blender.org/blender.git
d) cd blender
e) make update
I answer y and all seems to go well until here:
C:\Users\myuser\Documents\Develop\Blender\lib\win64_vc15\vulkan\share\vulkan\registry\vkconventions.py U C:\Users\myuser\Documents\Develop\Blender\lib\win64_vc15 Checked out revision 62969. python not found, required for this operation
My MS Visual Studio 2022 Community has the C++ Desktop Build environment installed along with the version of python integrated into VS. The Blender build instructions that I’ve worked through don’t mention python explicitly but I know Blender uses python extensively.
Now I’ve checked my global Windows 11 Environment variables for the PATH variable and yes, there is no path included to go to a python shell.
At this location C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\2022\Community\Common7\IDE\CommonExtensions\Microsoft\VC\SecurityIssueAnalysis\python there is a python.exe that is version 3.9.9
Should I add that path to my path variable or is there another python path I should be adding.
I’m trying to be a stickler for what the directions are telling me to do as near as possible.
What have I done wrong?
