Cura 2.5.0 and Nvidia GeForce Driver 381.89

Looks like the new Windows GeForce driver changed something that Cura's QT library is sensitive to.  Upgrading the GeForce driver seems to preserve OpenGL support for other software, but Cura refuses to boot saying:

"Unabled to probe for OpenGL support.  Cura requires at least OpenGL 2.0.  Please check your video drivers."

Or something close to that.  I downgraded to Nvidia GeForce Driver version 381.65 and it works, but my guess is that others will start seeing this problem.

    Thank you for posting that. I have been doing a lot of work and therefore not upgrading the driver even though it pops up all the time bugging me.

    Now, I shall wait. Thanks!! :)

    Windows 10 from 381.65 to 381.89. Hmmm... weird.

    I wish I could find the reference, but I have read that Windows 10 has had issues with video driver upgrades.

    FYI: I ran into similar issues with Intel HD4000 drivers on Windows 10.

    The Device Manager said my Video drivers were 'up to date', but I found newer ones on Intel's web site. As I wanted upgraded OpenGL to use Cura enhanced Layer View, I upgraded it to Intel's newest.

    That was a HUGE mistake.

    Some stuff was fine: Simplify3D ran the same.

    Other's Broken: Slicer took MINUTES to start and then very long times to load/view/slice anything! Paint.net just ran as slow as Photoshop. Ugh.

    And it didn't help Cura at all - same OpenGL version :(

    I downgraded back to the recommended Windows version and everything got back to normal.

    So, it seams that if Windows says you're on the 'latest version' of a driver, what they really mean is you're on the latest version that actually Works with Windows...

    Verified that upgrading to 382.05 (released on 5/3/2017, four days after my report) resolves this issue on Windows 10. It all works fine now.

      • 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
