Posted · Cura 5.0.0

Hello, I have installed Cura 5.0.0 and have successfully been using it.  My woes start, Every time I shut my computer down and restart and open Cura. 

 

Instead of it opening like normal, it goes through a full installation again and does this everytime.  When the computer is left asleep for days, this issue does not occur. 

Does anyone know what the issue could be?

 

THANKS!!

    I think you are clicking on the installer?  After you have installed cura, make sure to delete the installer (the file you downloaded).

    Thanks.  I am trying to locate the installer in the files without any success.  Do you where I can find this?  

     

    In my Ultimaker 5.0 Cura folder there is nothing showing even after opening folders.

    The process is very different for windows, linux, or Mac.  What operating system are you using?

     

    In Windows, the installer itself has a long name like: 

    Ultimaker-Cura-5.1.0-win64.exe

    and is typically found in a "download" folder but you can specify where your browser saved it.

     

    Whereas (at least on windows) Cura has a much shorter name like:

    Cura.exe

    And is typically in a folder like "c:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 4.8.0\Cura.exe"

     

    On Linux there is no installer and you always run the file that ends in ".AppImage".

     

    I could be totally wrong and maybe you are indeed running cura and somehow (somehow? ) it tries to reinstall itself?  Seems far fetched.
