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 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: 


    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:


    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.

      • 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.
