Cura won't launch with Nvidia


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura won't launch with Nvidia

I have a 2GB Nvidia 750GTX Ti, and I can't get Cura to launch.  I get an error message: Could not probe OpenGL. This program requires OpenGL 2.0 or higher.  Please check your video card drivers.


I'm running current NVidia drivers (445.75), so I know I've got more than enough OpenGL support. I've tried redownloading (the file hash is the same), and reinstalling, but that did not make a difference.

    Are you perhaps trying to run Cura through an RDP connection? This is not supported, because RDP "hides" the opengl capabilities of the GPU of the host computer.
