Installing Panda alongside current Python installation?

Hi! After peeking a while in these forums I’m about to try to get my ropes with Panda3D. I noticed the installer (for windows) installs panda and its own python, adding both ‘python’ and ‘ppython’ to the path.
Since I already had python installed isn’t there an easy way to make Panda install into that rather than putting another python in my system?

Francisco :slight_smile:

Yes, but only if your existing Python is the same version of Python that Panda uses (currently 2.5, but it will be 2.6 with the next release of Panda).

The easiest way to do this (if your version matches) is to copy C:\Panda3D-1.6.2\python\Lib\site-packages\panda3d.pth into the site-packages dir of your existing Python installation. There are several discussions on this subject in the forums.


Ok, thanks! :wink:
