Posted · Cura Steam Engine not accepting .ini profile files

Hey,

I'm trying to slice an STL with a profile I created with cura's GUI

The problem I have is that when I try this i get the following error:

Default config 'default.cfg' not used?

Config(C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.04\profile.ini): Line zd: No key value pair found

Failed to read config 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.04\MCF.ini'

It works fine on the GUI,

Why it's not working on the command line? What could be wrong??

Thanks

    Don't know if I could really help, but it might help others if you provide the ini/cfg files you are having issues with.

    Have you manually tweaked these at some point OR did it always blow up?

    Have you tried to do a clean re-install (backup config files first, just incase)?
