Cura will not run on W7 Home Prem.

Recommended Posts

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?!?!?!

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

Fatal Python error: Segmentation fault

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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
