Saving print profiles before updating Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · Saving print profiles before updating Cura

I'm having an issue with Cura 4.0 opening. The splash screen loads then the program window pops up and just remains white and unresponsive. I've searched this issue an have tried compatibility mode, run as Admin, and deleting post 2015 versions of Microsoft visual C + +, none of which worked. I was going to try and uninstall and reinstall the current version, but I want to keep my profiles. Since I can't open the program, are they saved somewhere? Thanks for your help

Hello,

in the marketplace, there are tools for updating for not to loose any confogurations. Install before upgrade (the actual version upgrade installs automatically). I don't need the versions 4.0-->4.1 and 4.1-->4.2: I uninstalled these manually.

What i don't know: upgrading for many versions!

-->You should leave the old version installed, only install the newest version. On my computer (mac) it works fine (-->rename the old version...).

Hello,

I would try to install the next version (4.1); normally on my computer (OSX), it makes a copy of all preferences. Afterwards (if running) you should update at least to 4.3; -->4.4 and 4.5 have issues with holes...

--> I have simultanely installed 4.3, 4.4.1, 4.5 and can use the version I need!

 

good luck

Seems that some configuration folders were missing. I followed the "Reset Cura" article from the Ultimaker website. I had to delete the configuration folders, then uninstall the program, restart ... then install Cura from scratch. Everything seems to be working fine now.

      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.
