Hi all,

 

Firstly, my first post so really appreciate your guidance, as always it's great to have forum resources.

Lucky to have got a new laptop for the winter and firing up Cura on it for all my slicing needs, however I've come across and issue....

 

System details firstly

Asus TUF A15 - this has built in radeon graphics and a separate nvidia 1660.

Windows 10

Latest Cura 4.8

 

When I try to start up Cura I get a "loadlibrary failed with error 87". I've tried various internet fixes and the one that works is when I remove the nvidia driver.

From what I see online Cura doesn't know whether to use Radeon or nvidia. 

 

 

Has anyone come across this issue and seen a fix?

 

 

Thanks

Eoin

    ... you have to tell Windows which Graphic-card to use for Cura...

    In the past it was easier, you could right-click the icon and change graphic-card... that option seems to be gone since a few updates of Windows!

    Hi Mari, Really appreciate the help

     

    I thought we were onto the winner but still no joy. I'll take a deeper look later this evening.

     

    I think I've done every combination of both AMD and nvidia driver both laptop OEM and direct. Maybe I've jumbled it all up now.....
