Can not load a 3mf file as a project

I am trying to load a 3mf file into Cura 5.0 as a project so I can extract the profile from it. When I load the file it just loads the print that is in the file but I never get the "Load As Profile" dialog box. I know the profile is in the file as others have used it and I even unzipped it and I can see all of the content. Running Cura 5.0 on Win10. Thanks!

    On the "General" page of the Cura preferences, scroll down to "Opening and saving files" and check that the "Default behavior when opening a project file" is not set to "Always import models".

    No Op, but I am having the same issue.  I can confirm that the "Opening and saving files" and check that the "Default behavior when opening a project file" is not set to "Always import models", but set to "Always ask me this", but I also tried "Always open as a project" and it still does not import or ask to import settings.  I USE TO HAVE the setting at "Always import models", but changed it and restarted cura.

     

    Windows 10

    Ender 3

    Cura 5.0.0 ( and also Cura 5.1.0 Beta + 304 )

    Using CHEP's just released profiles for 5.0 link - > https://thangs.com/designer/CHEP/3d-model/Cura V5.0 Good (0.20) Profile from Filament Friday-184723

    I will also attach it here.

    stderr.log file attached.

     

     

    EDIT: Help on FB suggested it may be the Start-up Optimizer causing issues, and when I disabled it,  I was able to import the 3mf as a project.

     

    So, is this a Start-up Optimizer issue, Cura importer issue, or user error?

    I have been wrestling with this since Cura 5 came out and I tried Cura 5.1.1 today with the same issue.

     

    However today I tried something new. I changed my dual monitor setup to a single monitor setup and it opened the 3mf project!

     

    Btw I'm also Running Windows 11.
