Cura will not run on W7 Home Prem.

OK Guys,

Here's where I'm at now.

I've downloaded Cura 3 times. (Ver 7)

Installed/uninstalled 3 times from 'each' d/l

Deleted files and folders as suggested in another post.

Changed all the permissions to run in Admin Mode.

And nothing works... Cura will not run... not even a splash screen

What I'm thinking of trying:

Use Windows uninstall

then clean out APPDATA/ROAMING/LOCAL of any files/folders left behind.

then RegEdit and clear out anything pointing to Cura.

then try another install.

Anybody got any other ideas I could try?!?!?!

Thanks Grandpa Bill for creating a topic. I'm sure we'll be able to figure it out.

To be sure, I'll tag our experts @Nallath and @Ghostkeeper for their help.

Since we are about to enter the weekend it may be a little bit longer than usual before they see the tag, but perhaps we're lucky :)

    What version did work? If a normal re-install doesn't work than a 'clean' re-install is a good way to go.

    You could try to look in the log-files $User/AppData/Roaming/cura/2.7/ if there are error's

    Roaming/cura/2.7 was blank... the only folder in there was plugins and that was empty.

    This is what I found in APPDATA/Local/Cura/stderr

    Well guys,

    I'm done it all several times over with no luck.

    But I did notice one thing that doesn't make sense

    The download file name clearly says that it's 2.7 and that it's

    64 bit..... BUT after it's installed it says that it installed

    the 32 bit version.

    What's up with that?!?!?!1

    There is no 32 bit version of Ultimaker Cura 2.7

    Well guys, it looks like I need a geek more advanced than me....

    I completely wiped out 2.7 and rebooted.

    Installed the new 3.0.3 version and it "STILL" won't run.

    Nothing loads not even the start up splash screen.

    As I said in the beginning, This is a Toshiba Laptop with a brand

    new hard drive and a 'factory' restore using their restore disks.

    (OS is: Windows 7 Home Premium)

    Then did all the updates from both Windows and Toshiba.

    So some where there's a problem that I can't find.

    Can you answer the question about which GPU is in your computer? Alternatively, the exact type of your Toshiba computer might give us some more info.

      • 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
