Cura will not run on W7 Home Prem.

Posted · 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

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.
