Click on stl file and start cura does not works anymore.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Click on stl file and start cura does not works anymore.

It's simple:

I used to click on stl file and open cura. Now the file has the icon of a not recognised file in windows.

I tried to "open with" and set curaengine.exe as default... but this do not solve the problem and instead open a prompt windows making hundred of calculation...

Maybe i do not have to point to curaengine.exe?

I know is a stupid question that can be avoided just opening cura and open the file from there...but i don't understand why it doesn't works.

Thank you.

You can also drag and drop the file in Cura.

That's a Windows configuration issue, not a problem with Cura. You need to right click on the STL file and choose "Open with...|Choose program", select Cura and tick the "Always use the selected program" checkbox. That's on XP (English). Other Windows versions may be worded slightly differently.
