Cura 2.1 not starting properly on Win7 x64

Recommended Posts


I downloaded the latest version of Cura and installed it. However when I open the program all it gives are two empty windows. One saying add printer with a white background and the other saying cura with a black background. Once I exit the white window in front however, the software just crashes.


What can I do?

Try running Cura as Administrator:

Right click on the Cura icon and select "Run as Administrator"

If that works, you may not have had Administrator privileges when you installed Cura.

You can either uninstall Cura and then re-install as an Admin or change Cura to always start as Administrator:

Right-click on Cura icon and select Properties, under the Compatibility tab check the box "Run this program as an Administrator". Then click "Ok"

Hope this helps.
