Posted · Cura 3.3.1 not starting...

Hi!
I've installed Cura 3.3.1 on a slightly old ACER Aspirae 5625G laptop..

 

When I launch Cura, I can see the cura.exe in the taskmanager for about 10secs, then it just disappear... I don't get the splash screen or anything...

I've tested with a couple of older versions of Cura as well with the same result...

In the stderr.log, I see a python segmentation error...

 

 

Fatal Python error: Segmentation fault

Current thread 0x00000ca8 (most recent call first):

I've tried updating the video-drivers (it has two video-cards, I'm not really sure why, but I'm guessing on for the laptop-screen, one for the external screen connection)...

I've updated the chipset drivers

I've tried updating python

I've reinstalled Cura a couple of times, completely removing everything (including appdata)

The machine is as mentioned an Acer Aspire 5625G:
Amd Athlon II X2 P320 (2.1GHz)
ATI mobility Radeon HD 5470
4GB Memory


Any ideas?
