New Cura download will not open

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded the 15.04.3 Cura download and installed it. All seemed to go just fine. Whenever I try and open it though nothing happens. Not an error message or anything. I tried running it as an administrator and it did that same thing.

I have a Windows 10 computer. It has good processing speed and plenty of space available. What am I doing wrong?

I have downloaded 10 different versions. The only one that kind of loaded was the first... And it only showed me the cura logo... When I clicked on it it disappeared and left me in the same boat. I am starting to think its a compatability issue  or security issue not allowing it to load but I have no idea what it could be. This computer was bought maybe two years ago. It was a custom build and it was supposed to have solid performance for any of my work needs. 8gig of ram. 2 terrabytes of memory. I am not sure about the graphics card but how advanced does it need to be? I have used slic3r for years with no issues. I went looking for some kind of firewall and I see nothing that indicates it is being blocked but the program will not load. I sent a compatibility error off to Microsoft. A lot of good that will do. I am grasping at straws at this point. I really want to use this as Lulzbot has a bunch of predetermined settings for different quality prints and I have been having issues with one of our printers. I was hoping this would solve it. Anyway that is the end of my rant.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
