Posted · re: getting the prog to work

I have the 64bit version of Ultimaker Cura installed on my Gateway laptop model NV570P-18U, OS Win 10 Pro. And the the 32bit version installed on my on my Toshiba Satellite L455-S5000, OS Win 10 Home 32bit. The Gateway has a 1TB HDD and 8GB of memory.  The Toshiba has a 500GB HDD with 4GB of memory.


When I start Cura on my Gateway laptop. I end up with the following error message  "Add a network printer,  there is no printer on your network,  add a non network printer" I can't close this printer box without using ctrl > Alt > Del. I don't have my own 3D printer. I have a 3D printer available to use at Confluent Space, Richland WA . I want to setup the Toshiba to take to the Confluent Space store.


When I start the 32bit version I get the following error message:   "could not initailze OpenGL. This program requires OpenGL 2.0 or higher. please check your video card drivers" then the program freezes and I have to use Ctrl > Alt > Del to close the program. The Toshiba has the most up to date video drivers available already installed.


I don't normally take the Gateway laptop "my primary computer" anywhere. It  won't fit my back pack. I have to carry the Gateway in a large book bag, and getting on the floor to unplug the power cord and all of the other cords is very hard for me. The Toshiba fits the back pack. I never have ran into this kind of a problem with the same program on 2 dif laptops.
