Blender crashes when I rename the Python folder


After installing Python 3.5.1 and then renaming the Python folder in the Blender installation folder, Blender keeps crashing at startup.
I ran it from the command prompt, and here is the result:

Running on a 32-bit Win 7. I have Blender 32-bit and Python 32-bit of course…
Do you know what might cause this and how to resolve?


Perhaps Blender can’t find the new python. Try typing “python” in the command window and see if it’s there. If not, it may be missing from a path.

Re-installing python, and making sure you select any options to put it in path, make it the default python, etc. would help. That assumes you don’t want some other version of python to be default.
