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


Recommended Posts

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

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 .... ...

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

nothing more happens.

Any idea? :???:

    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.

    kayoo - why post a topic and not even follow it? Click on "follow this topic" in the top right. If you ever read this topic.

    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)

    Can you temporarily uninstall FreeCAD? looks like it is picking up stuff from the FC installation.

    That's it! I uninstalled FreeCad and Cura. After reinstalling first Cura and then FreeCad both run perfect.

    Thank you anon4321, Daid and gr5 for your fast help!

    :):):)

    Oh, yes, FreeCAD is causing crap with Cura. They install some global stuff that they shouldn't. Not sure if they fixed it in their latest release.

    I've had no issue with the latest release of FreeCAD.

    Though as in Kayoo's case, I've always installed Cura first and then FreeCAD. So it's possible that the installation order is significant.

    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.

    I had the same problem with this glut32.dll. On my laptop it was the installation of Haskell.

    de-installated HASKELL and everything worked fine.

    best regards

    Stefan
