Downloaded the latest Blender 2.71 and did a new install. The PA splash screen comes up and then nothing. Task manager doesn't show anything running. Tried another clean install same thing happened.
I'm running Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2. Blender 2.70 worked!
Downloaded Blender 2.71 again and did two separated clean installs. Neither would get past the PA splash screen. Anybody else having problem with this?
