Running Cura 2.3.1 on an older machine

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Running Cura 2.3.1 on an older machine

All,

I've got a fairly old Dell Latitude D620 laptop running 64 bit Windows 10.

I would like to use this machine in my lab working with my printer.

Both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Cura give me this message upon startup:

"Could not initialize OpenGL.  The program requires OpenGL 2.0 or higher.  Please check your video card drivers."

The video card is listed as

Mobile Intel 945 Express Chipset Family

Any suggestions on how to get past this?

Thanks

Chris

Some spelunking around "seems" to indicate that this video card only supports OpenGL v1.4.

Is there a Cura version that will run on this setup?

Cura 15.04 probably still works with that gpu

Then I don't have much hope for you.

That machine is *old*
