Cura crashes whenever I try to open a file

Whenever the file dialog is open, Cura will crash.  Not such a big deal for models since I can drag them onto the screen and it will open them.  But trying to load a profile doesn't work.  Anyone else have this issue?  How did you fix it?

No, single screen. I can drag and drop a file but if I try to open the file tab it crashes. Also crashes when I try to save a file. I have totally uninstalled and reinstalled, no joy.

    Do you have multiple displays? If so, does it matter which display Cura is on?

     

    Just tried and it crashes, or hangs would be a better term, for me too if I have Cura on secondary display.
    No issues while on display 1.

     

    If I drag Cura to display one it release immedeately

    Hi

    I have the same issue with Cura 3D version 4.7 & 4.8. Opening a file or saving one freezes the application.

     

    The issue doesn't occur when I launch the application by right clicking on the application and selecting 'run as an administrator'. As it is quite annoying, you can right click on the cura icon, select properties then go to the 'compatibility' tab and tick 'run this program as an administrator'.

     

    I believe that is why you can't find any useful information in the Cura log files.

     

    I hope this post helps someone.

    cheers
