How to start Cura on Windows

Recommended Posts

I can't figure out how to start Cura on Windows XP.

I installed it properly, it run correctly after the installation (autostart) and connected to the printer.

After closing it (to quit the admin account and re-open it in another user account) I couldn'd find the proper file to start it. It doesn't appear anywhere in a program shortcut list, and searching in the program files folder, I see the cura folder with dozens of files, but any clue which one starts the software. Anyone can help?

Yes, that's the crux of the matter, indeed. Copy-Paste of the shortcut doesn't work, so I had to chose the (more complicate) workaround to give admin rights to my user account, install Cura, and voila, the shortcut appears in the start menu

Now I can proceed to the next step and find out why PC interface doesn't recognize the SD card *sigh*
