Cura will not start in Windows


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura will not start in Windows

If you don't mind losing all your old settings, I'd delete all that and then restart cura (absolutely no need to reinstall).


Cura puts settings I think in 2 locations and I forget which location you need to delete.  You can google around on this forum (if you say site:ultimaker.com google only gives you results from this website and that's mostly this forum).


Anyway I think it's all here but if this doesn't work google around for the other folder:

%APPDATA%\cura\ (Windows), or usually C:\Users\\<your username>\AppData\Roaming\cura\


Delete all versions.  Cura 4.8 tries to load your old profiles from older versions and that can cause a crash.


After you do all that if it still doesn't work and you have two monitors try unplugging one monitor before launching.


If all that doesn't work grab the log file here:

%APPDATA%\cura\<Cura version>\cura.log (Windows), or usually C:\Users\\<your username>\AppData\Roaming\cura\<Cura version>\cura.log

    Thank you,

     I uninstalled Cura and then restarted the computer for the 4th time.  I reinstalled the software and now I am able to use it.  I did not lose my profiles and it seems to work.  Some of the settings that I had set up for a print had been changed.

      • 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
