Cura 4.5 Restoring from Backup does nothing


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.5 Restoring from Backup does nothing

I'm having some issues trying to get a second copy of Cura running on my laptop (already have Cura running fine on my desktop). I downloaded 4.5 to my laptop, clicked through the initial setup screens and selected a random printer profile just to get into the software. Then I logged into my Ultimaker account in order to restore from a backup of my desktop version of the program with all my saved profiles etc., but when i go to restore, I get the message "You will need to restart Cura before your backup is restored. Do you want to close Cura now?". When I click yes, it closes Cura and then does nothing. Sometimes upon re-opening Cura I will have to go through the initial setup screens again, as if my first run through was wiped clean somehow. I've attached a screen shot and my log files. Any ideas?
