Question

I'm using Blender 2.36 under windows and b/rad is not working: what should I do?

Answer

Make sure that you have installed Python 2.3 (Blender 2.36 is not compatible with Python 2.4).

After that, go to My Computer/Control Panel/System/Advanced, and
click on the "Environment Variables ..." button.

After that, add the new two environment variables PYTHONHOME and PYTHONPATH, pointing them to the Python folder (default C:\PYTHON23)

and update the PATH environment variable.

Then, install the pywin32 package, put the content of the brad archive in .blender/scripts, open Blender, open a scripts window, Update menus and launch b/rad. Don't forget to update the program preferences and to create the export folder (default C:\BRAD).
