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.
