Cura (14.07) doesn't start on Win7pro 64bit PC

Recommended Posts

Cura is running without any problems on my 3 years old business-PC.

On my high-performance home-PC Cura doesn't start.

- no error message during installation

- uninstall/reinstall doesn't help

- running as administrator doesn't work

- antivirus off - doesn't help

- start from windows start menu: nothing happens

- when starting direct from C: Create \ Program Files (x86) \ Cura_14.07 \ CuraEngine.exe I see a black popup for 1/2 second:

-------------

"C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Cura_14.07 \ CuraEngine.exe

This program is distributet in the hope it will be useful did, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY: without even .... ...

You Should Have ... received a copy of the GNU Affero General Public Licenses along with this program. ... ...

M1 40 S0; heated bed heater off (if you have it)

... ..."

-------------

nothing more happens.

Any idea? :???:

I have win7 64 bit and cura works fine - it's not the operating system.

 

We have a wide range of windows versions on machines in the office, so if Cura didn't work on one of them on general, I would know about it. But there are tons of different possible setups. (MacOS has the same issue, and a few more)

I don't think CuraEngine is the UI. Pretty sure it is the slicer. Try running Cura.bat from a command line to see if it gives you any information. The Cura UI is written in python and that is what the .bat starts.

 

Thank you! :-P

This is the information:

That's the total lack of 3D card drivers.

I had try to do a clean installation of my nvdia graphic card driver and with latest directX. The problem remain the same. Could you advice other alternative solution?

You can also check if some application installed a global "glut32.dll" in windows/system32, as that should not be there and might be causing a conflict which causes this error in return.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
