Cura 2.1.2 Error - Arcus.pyd


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 2.1.2 Error - Arcus.pyd

Hi all,

I may be ignorant, but I just installed Cura 2.1.2 after having used Cura 15 for some time. On first run, I get an error dialog and this in the log file:

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "cura_app.py", line 19, in 
 File "", line 10, in 
 File "", line 8, in __load
ImportError: (DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.) 'C:\\Program Files\\Cura 2.1\\Arcus.pyd'

Arcus is present and accounted for at the specified location. This is a Windows XP 32-bit machine. Thanks!

    The installers for Windows come with 64bit specific file which can't be executed. The message could be misleading as the file could be there but couldn't be executed. However, there is nothing wrong to run Cura on 32bit. On Ubuntu it is running on 32bit well.

    A good suggestion. When I run as admin and disable "Protect my system from unwanted changes", it simply says "Cura is not a valid Win32 application."

    No problem, Cura 15 is working great. Thanks for your help.
