Cura .MSI File


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura .MSI File

I'm a bit confused after I checked out the new Cura Version 4.6.2 you guys released yesterday.

Normally I'm downloading the .MSI File you always provide at github but today I can't find it.


So I heard from the new Ultimaker Essentials and in the presentation you told that one advantage of Cura Enterprise is the .MSI File you provide for the subscribers...

I wondered, because normally everyone is able to download it, hopefully you're just a little bit late and not going to make the free to use software bad to sell the new subscribing product.


I would like to hear from you!

    Cura 4.6.2 is not Cura Enterprise. I think it is just an oversight that the 4.6.2 release misses an msi.


    I don't think the exe installer is "bad". It has some features that are (were?) lacking in the msi installer (such as confirm to remove the settings and profiles).

    Hello @WeberUlti


    Since we launched Essentials we're now only making .msi builds for that.

    The reasoning behind this is .msi installs are mostly useful for companies, and we want them to use Essentials.

    We'll also need to get all the builds signed which can take extra time.


    For what reason do you need the .msi? Perhaps there's something we can do.
