Cura won't open.

Recommended Posts

Same here!!! I got 2.5 installed and it did open once but the materials window looked way wonky so I shut it down and restarted it. No good!! So then I uninstalled 2.5, rebooted, and reinstalled 2.4 and now THAT won't open either!!! I did a search of my system for "Cura" and got no results, but a MANUAL search of my system showed a butt load of plugin folders in a system folder named........you guessed it: Cura 2.4 AND Cura 2.5 that were never removed during the uninstall. Even a manual delete of both those system folders before reinstalling didn't fix the problem. I have a bad feeling that the 2.5 install jacked something in the registry and, just like those folders, didn't revert after the uninstall!! Stuck in the middle of a printer mod build with only half the parts printed, and FINALLY got my bed re-leveled, and NOW I don't have a slicer!!

I am a virgin. I am running Windows 10. I have downloaded Cura, won't open. I downloaded Slicer, it won't open. Minutes ago, I downloaded Reptier. It will open but I am not at alll familiar with it so I will try it in the morning. I really wanted to use Cura but I don't know what to do.

I've got the same problem !

Error writing file: Cura.exe

Installation folder: "C:\Program Files\Cura 2.5" , "C:\Program Files\Cura" did not work either.

Clicking "Ignore" and the rest of the installation seems to be OK.

Cura.exe file length = 0

total size: 369 339 631 bytes

Uninstalling and the program map is deleted.

Retry the installation with same result

Cura 2.3 are in a separate folder.

Using Win10pro 64-bit (updated)

Lot of disk (94G) and memory (10G) free

Intel Xeon E5-1650

Nvidia Quadro K2000 (1.2G used of 2G)

Do you think you can send me an working 2.5 Cura.exe file?

It might work if I paste it into the folder...

Tried to unpack "Cura-2.5.0-win64.exe" using 7-zip, and there are no Cura.exe there.

in 7-Zip file window, Cura.exe is 15265 bytes, but I don't seem to be able to extract it.

If I unpack the  "Cura-2.4.0-win64.exe" then I get a Cura.exe there.

Cura-2.5.0-win64.exe is 96,803KB in size. If you download is a different size, then try downloading it again.

Also try running the install as Administrator: Right click on Cura-2.5.0-win64.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'

See if that helps.

I just downloaded it and installed fresh with no issues.

Well... It seems like my antivirus, WebRoot, thinks that Cura.exe [2.5] contains [W32.Malware.Gen]. I'm on a corporate network, and are not allowed to disable the antivirus, and if i tell IT that I what to install a program that are flagged as containing malware...

We know the Baidu virusscanner gives a false positive on Cura 2.5, but Webroot seems to not find anything: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/b64ede0e1dd24aaa17cf444ed18d5027cad3db69dd286e65c3a585e96659d749/analysis/1492763796/
