Cura is freezes when I start it


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura is freezes when I start it

I'm using the latest version of Cura and I'm using an Ender 3 pro, it isn't connected or anything. Quite simply I install the software and it takes roughly about 30 seconds before the entire program freezes. I can minimize and expand it on windows, but that's about it. The only way I can close it is to go into Task Manager and shut it down from there. I'm at a complete loss. I've tried running it as admin and in windows 8 compatibility mode. I've re-installed it several times and have used an earlier version - to the same effect. I have a slight suspicion that it might have to do with the fact that when I last used Cura it was on a hard drive that is now "dead" and it's still connected to the MB, just been too lazy/forgetful to take it out. Could that be an issue? 


Help or advice would be much appreciated.
