Cannot Run Cura 4.0 on XPS 13

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cannot Run Cura 4.0 on XPS 13

Hey everyone. Recently, as a part of my move to a college laptop, I installed Cura, having used it flawlessly for years on my desktop, including version 4.0. However, I haven't even been able to open the program. I have tried pretty much everything (uninstalls, installing version 3.6, clearing out all files manually) including running DDU on my nvidia driver as recommended by a reddit user, given the possibility that having both an intel iGPU driver and an nvidia desktop GPU driver could pose (I am using a Razer Core V2 as a part of my computing solution). Does anyone have any idea how to go about fixing this? I REALLY don't want to lose all of my configuration files that I have created over the years, nor do I want to learn a new program. Thanks!


Just an FYI: I tried to find the log files and they don't seem to exist, it seems like the program isn't even getting far enough to generate a log.

Hi F,


Don't worry, as long as you're still able to access your old desktop computer, you will be able to backup your profiles!

For your initial issue:
- Have you tried running the software without the Razer Core V2, running on the internal GPU only?

- Could you share a DXDIAG report?
- Have you checked both:

  • Computer/users/[user_name]/AppData/Local/cura
  • Computer/users/[user_name]/AppData/Roaming/cura

If you would be able to find log files, that would really help the troubleshooting.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
