The last version of blender that was officially compatible with Windows XP was blender 2.76. Versions after that probably won't work. You can download previous version of blender here.

By default: see the doc about directory layout # LOCAL ./2.74/ # USER $HOME/.config/blender/2.74/ # SYSTEM /usr/share/blender/2.74/ 6 I don't know where it is stored, but you could just save your startup file as a normal .blend file, open it in the new blender installation and press CtrlU to set this file as your new startup file. 6 Yes. Blender 2.75a works in Windows 10. But I had some trouble making it work. After the upgrade from W8.1 to W10 it didn't work, but it was a problem of the new windows not having the correct drivers. I didn't have to spend much time working it out. Windows 10 did, after some time and a few reboots, offer to install the correct drivers. That fixed most ... 6 No it doesn't modify your system, provided you are using the self-contained .zip version. The self-contained .zip version is just that, self-contained. It will - of course - put data where-ever you tell it to. Animation output or other temporary files will be written where you tell Blender to put them. Temporary files (in C:\tmp\ by default) are deleted ... 6 It looks like it is having issues with the audio configuration. Go to where Blender is installed in the Windows Explorer. The Default Installation Path is C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender. When inside the Blender Folder, hold down the Shift key, and right-click any folder inside the Blender Folder (the 2.74 folder will work just fine), then ... 6 In fact they have a version for Android. Check this out. https://www.blendernation.com/2015/02/12/using-blender-for-android/ 6 You should get "software" OpenGL: Go to this link: http://download.blender.org/ftp/sergey/softwaregl/ Pick your OS version (86/64). Put the opengl32.dll file into your top Blender installation folder (C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender). This should be the same location as your blender.exe file. Blender should start. 6 Tech Stuff first As most Blender Branches, they are cross-platform and can be compiled for any supported operating system. Since support for compiling Blender is out of scope of BSE, I won't go into detail on how to do it. However, the documentation gives a very good starting point: https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Doc/Building_Blender Note that for ... 6 As of June 16 2018, the current Blender version available for Raspian Stretch via apt-get is 2.78a. This is behind the current Blender 2.79c for other platforms. You can install it with: sudo apt-get install blender It runs fine with full functionality, though it is slow. On a Pi 3 B+ it takes about one minute and 56 seconds to render the default scene (... 6 Click Append in File menu Browse file \ Brush and select brushes you need (b for box select) In Sculpt mode click on brush preview image and select one Updated: Brushes will be saved in you curent file. Thought I had it once but they disappeared once I click on one. That mean you have not saved your brushes in Startup file. If you need these brushes ... 6 You can install multiple versions of Blender alongside without them interfering. They will each have their own Preferences and scripts folder. On windows, there will be a folder for each version. You can also use a Blender version without "installing" it by downloading the portable version. 6 Option 1 - Release version Before downloading the entire repository using the 'Clone or download' button, make sure there no actual release (In most cases there is to keep development organized): If so, click on Releases Tab and download the latest release (zip or single py file): Option 2 - init.py folder (Clone or download) There are lazy authors so in ... 5 If you carefully look while hovering the mouse, you see a text saying "Choose mirror".

This can be unzipped wherever you want and run from the folder, it doesn't need to install. If you download the latest official release of Blender, currently 2.70, then you have the option of either downloading a regular installer or a zip again. 5 In that folder you unzipped, just double click on the blender.exe file. There is no need to "install" blender like you are thinking. Blender runs straight from the unzipped folder. 5 On Ubuntu, there's a PPA, so you can run the commands in the terminal sudo add-apt-repository ppa:irie/blender sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install blender and you'll have one of the latest builds of Blender (read more here or visit the PPA's website here). WARNING: This won't be the official stable release, but the most recent version of Blender as ... 5 The biggest hurdle to getting Blender running on the Raspberry Pi is the fact that the Pi has an ARM processor rather than one that uses the x86 instruction set, which means software has to be specifically compiled for it. Currently the Blender Foundation does not provide these builds at the moment, but there are a number of builds floating around produced ... 5 Update 12-4-19 Mid May will be the UI Cleaning.
