Open With Ultimaker-Cura not working in File Explorer Windows 11

Posted · Open With Ultimaker-Cura not working in File Explorer Windows 11

When I try to open something like an stl or gcode file with cura through the "open with" option in the file explorer, the window just pops up again and doesn't open cura. I tried searching online which led to a few other people describing the same issue but I didn't get a very definitive answer. I've updated cura a few times and now I'm on version 5.3.0. I've noticed that the "open with" name is Ultimaker-Cura.exe and not UltiMaker-Cura.exe with a different capitalization which I'm assuming is the application name from a previous version based on my research; This is just a blatant guess though, I could be totally wrong about this. Also when I try to select another app from my pc and choose UltiMaker-Cura.exe, it doesn't change the menu at all and the same problem reoccurs. This isn't a game-breaking bug but it is kind of inconvenient and annoying.2023-04-23.thumb.png.0272f44a783b87989aa73c1836187545.png

    That's an odd bug.. 
    I would recommend reporting this on github to ensure it gets visibility.. The community forum is not the best place to report bugs unfortunately. 

    Submitting it on github ensures it lands right in front of the developer team.

      • 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.
