Failed to probe OpenGL


Recommended Posts

Posted · Failed to probe OpenGL

Hi, I have an ASUS laptop running windows 10 (64bit)

I have been using Cura on this laptop for a month now with no issues. Tonight I restarted my laptop. Assuming windows installed updates. I can no longer open Cura. I get "Could not probe OpenGL. This program requires OpenGL 2.0 or higher. Please check your video card drivers." I have uninstalled recent updates. I have updated my AMD graphics. I have tried running Cura in Windows 8,7 I still get this error. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have fixed the issue. In the end I went to ASUS and updated my BIOS. I no longer have an error on my display adaptors and can now open/run Cura 🙂 I hope if anyone else has this issue can fix it the same way I did. 
    Happy Printing!!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
