As noted, not the right list.

But seeing this kind of stuff done in High Schools is GREAT!

So one suggestion:

If this is Windows, there are two versions of python for Windows: 32bit and 64bit -- if an installer for a third-party package is looking for one of those, and the other is installed, you will get the confusing error something like "python is not installed", when it really means "the correct version of python is not installed".

So make sure you see which version Replicatorg is expecting and make sure that's the one you installed.

Good luck,

Hi Lisa,

It's unlikely that anyone on this list can help you with this. It's a question you should ask of the ReplicatorG people, not the Python people...

I am trying to get Replicatorg to use python to gcode but it keeps giving the error “generate Gcode  requires that a Python interpreter be installed.  Would you like to visit the Python download page now?


I tell it no because I have it installed.  I have even gone in and selected the path for the gcode.  It still gives me the same error.  How can I fix this?
