Python not available in 2011 SP1 after you uninstall 2011


A customer reported this last Friday. After he installed Softimage 2011 SP1, he uninstalled 2011, and after that Python did not show up as a scripting language in 2011 SP1.

I uninstalled 2011 and sure enough Python was gone in 2011 SP1.
To get Python back, open a Softimage 2011 SP1 command prompt and run runonce.bat.

Note that on Windows 7 or Vista, you’ll have to use an elevated command prompt (right-click the Command Prompt shortcut and click Run as Administrator).

  1. Could you tell a noob how you go about doing the fix?
    I am not sure how to go about opening a command prompt to softimage etc..

    • On Vista and Windows 7:

      1. Click Start > All Programs > Autodesk > Autodesk Softimage 2011 SP1
      2. Right-click Command Prompt and click Run as Administrator
      3. In the command prompt window, run the command runonce.bat
