Screen corruption with 3.2 on Windows 10

Posted · Screen corruption with 3.2 on Windows 10

I have Cura 3.2.1 installed in a new install of Windows 10 Pro.  Cura is having severe display issues.  Closing and reopening clears up the problem temporarily and the window will display normally.  Unfortunately, the issue resurfaces again, generally within a minute of restarting and usually sooner than that.

    I've been doing some more troubleshooting.  I removed Cura 3.2.1 and installed 3.1.  The problems continued with 3.1.  A reboot did not help.  This is Windows 10 running inside a VMware Workstation 14.0 VM.  I removed and reinstalled VMware Tools which contains the video driver and OpenGL.  The problem continues.  I had minor display issues with 3.1 on a Windows 7 VM, but minimizing/maximizing the window generally resolved the problem.  With this install of Windows 10, Cura is pretty much unusable.

    I have Cura installed in a personal Windows 10 VM running on a business laptop.  I don't want to install on the laptop's host OS because it is a business machine.  I'm afraid I'm stuck running inside a VM.  I have Cura 3.1 running reasonably well in a Windows 7 VM, but that VM is getting very cramped on space.  I'm moving all of the CAD/CAM to a new Windows 10 VM, but there is something about the new setup that Cura 3.1 or 3.2.1 just doesn't like.
