Cura 3.0.4 loses its brains after first run

Recommended Posts

I just uninstalled and reinstalled Cura 3.0.4, and on first run, everything is great - it finds my two configured printers, all my materials settings, and profiles. I click yes to the license, etc. But when I close and reopen it, everything is haywire - it prompts me to add a printer, my materials are gone, and nothing seems right. I can fix all this by going to C:\Users\me\AppData\Roaming\cura and deleting the 3.0 folder. But I have to do this every restart for it to launch properly. Has anyone else run into this?

No? I'm the only one? I guess I'll try uninstalling and wiping all settings...

Edit: sure enough, my problem was a corrupt cura.cfg in AppData/Roaming/cura/3. I'm not sure what particularly was causing issue, but I looked at the version created fresh on a clean first run, and the older version from my previous 3.0 folder that kept breaking, and copied the only settings I knew I wanted (visible switches and such).
