Latest Cura update looses file icons


Recommended Posts

Posted · Latest Cura update looses file icons

After updating to 4.12.1 none of my Gcode or STL files show the Cura icon. Instead they show a generic icon...see attached file where I point to the icon that is used.

I've tried going into properties of one of the gcode and Stl files to see if I can change the icon, but it shows that Cura is the program that this file points to.

I then uninstalled and re-installed Cura and made sure I checked gcode and stl files to be opened by Cura but that didn't help.

Any ideas what happened and how to get the correct icon to show up on my desktop gcode and stl files?

    Hi bigdawg,

    the culprit is a wrong entry in the registry (but don't ask me what's it exactly).

    The quick and dirty solution that worked for me is installing a cleanup tool (I used piriform's ccleaner) and run a registry checkup/cleaning process. After that, the cura-related icons reappeared.

      • 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
