Windows Error when Slicing


Recommended Posts

Posted · Windows Error when Slicing

Hi all,

I am getting an error in the Command Window when trying to slice in Cura (RC3 and RC4). I am using XP installed in Parallels on a Mac. This is the first time I have tried to slice anything on this machine.

My Steps:

1. Load STL

2. Edit Slicing Parameters

3. Slice Model

Cura Response:

1. Bar appears on the bottom and says "Starting..."

2. Command Window Updates with the following:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\modular_universal_joint.stl 0

Exception in thread Thread-2:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "C:\Program Files\Cura_RC4\python\lib\threading.py", line 552, in __boots



File "C:\Program Files\Cura_RC4\Cura\gui\sliceProgessPanel.py", line 127, in r


p = subprocess.Popen(self.cmdList[self.fileIdx], stdout=subprocess.PIPE, std


File "C:\Program Files\Cura_RC4\python\lib\subprocess.py", line 679, in __init


errread, errwrite)

File "C:\Program Files\Cura_RC4\python\lib\subprocess.py", line 893, in _execu



WindowsError: [Error 14001] This application has failed to start because the app

lication configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this p


Any Ideas?

    to confirm for others, on my first attempt with CURA (on a 'clean' vm of XP32), the Cura window just showed the status "Starting..."

    but (eventually) in the dos window I noticed several errors, with the last "WindowsError 14001"

    Downloading the 2008 redistributable and running that the allowed the GCode to build (quickly)
