How to start Cura on Windows


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to start Cura on Windows

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*

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
