Using Windows 8.1 64 bit, blender version 2.79b
When I go to the download page it makes me download an msi file. After I extract it, it just takes various CM_Unspecified files out. I've tried clicking on CM_FP_Blender.blender.exe in order to run the program, but it gives the error: The program can't start because python35.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
And so I followed that, but did nothing, still the same error. I've tried downloading blender several times now and it never has worked. I really want to start using blender, so this is quite frustrating! I could use any help I could get, thanks
