Cura 3.04 problem - only runs once!

Recommended Posts

Anyone else having problems running Cura 3.04?

Firstly I upgraded from 3.03 but did not delete version 3.03, and after starting 3.04 once (checked version number on splash screen) my system always started with version 3.03 after the initial and only start up of 3.04.

I then deleted version 3.04 from the 'Programs and Features' in control panel as it was showing as installed and on running the 3.04 install program again I deleted the previous version 3.03. Once again version 3.04 ran OK, but on trying to start the program again it could not be found on my system.

I also noted that 3.04 did not import the machine definitions for my Mark2 set up and only remembered my UM2+ settings.

I once again deleted 3.04 and reloaded 3.03 which runs fine and also has remembered the Mark2 settings.

Running Win10 1709 build 16299.19.

Any suggestions most welcome :)

Have got it running now - Just loaded into the root of 'C' drive instead of the default location and now seems OK!

Further to my remarks above, I have looked further and now got it up and running in the normal programs area.

On closer inspection I noticed the downloaded update file obtained from Cura was named ' Ultimaker Cura-3.0.4-win64' whereas previous versions were named 'Cura-3.xx.xx' and the file name was the path to the installation.

Removed the extra 'Ultimaker' from the installation directory and all running fine, and Mark2 etc also there. :)

    • 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.
