Cura 4.9.1 asks to add a new printer on almost every launch.

Hey all, 

 

Around 80% of the time I launch cura, I get the splash screen asking me to add a printer, even though I already have two which I have already entered.

My solution has been to close it and reopen it each time in order to try and get it to open without the splash screen.

This problem had persisted with cura 4.9 (not 4.9.1) which I uninstalled in order to install 4.9.1 in hopes that this would fix the problem.

However I am still getting the splash screen asking to add a new printer.

 

Please help me fix this,

Thanks,

Matthew

    It might not be the most elegant solution, but what I usually do when something is acting weird like this in Cura, I just nuke the entire settings folder. Looks like you've already found that folder, but in case someone else sees this the easiest way to get to it  is to open Cura and then go to Help->Show Configuration Folder.

     

    Close Cura and then select everything in that folder and delete it. This will cause Cura to re-create all the setting files from scratch which will usually fix things. Of course this will also remove any custom settings you have done.

    Well, what i can see from the logs is that the definition SV01 has some issues with it. I'm not entirely sure what causes it. Could you try to remove the machines in machine_instances and see if that fixes it.
