Cura crashes on start up

I installed Cura on my laptop for the first time and it crashed on start-up. I get an error message saying 'unable to initialise openGL' whilst the Cura title bar says "add printer". I'm unable to screenshot what I see exactly becuase the screenshot looks different from my screen as I see it (never seen that before).

Uninstalling and reinstalling did not help.

My laptop has an integrated Intel 4500M graphics and Windows says the driver is up to date. I tried installing drivers again anyway and an error said that my specification was not sufficient to install which is kind of stupid.

Is my laptop too old? The drivers available on Intel's website are for Windows XP, Vista or 7. Nonetheless, Windows 10 obviously found something to use since my screen works just fine.

    I have the same problem, only the ultimaker 3 works for me is that also the case with you?

     

    Thanks for your relpy. I'm not sure what you mean. I thought the Ultimaker 3 is a machine and I'm having problems with Cura, the program. I can't even make a GCODE file from my STL so I don't get to try it on the Ultimaker (I only have access to an Ultimaker 2).

    I haven't tried to connect my laptop directly to the Ultimaker 2. I wanted to make a GCODE file and transfer it to an SD card to put into the Ultimaker.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
