Cura won't open

i’m trying to download the Cura program but it won’t let me open it downloading it i have no problems i’ve even tried downloading older versions of Cura but still nothing works. mesh mixer and blender work and open fine on my laptop but for some reason Cura is giving me a lot of issues. Is anyone able to help me out with this.

Hi Duckyd

Welcome to the forum, Glad you found us. I can say this is a new one for me. Usually, it will produce some type of error to tell you there is a problem.

because It will attempt to directly access the serial ports I would have to guess it’s a security or access thing.

Right-click on your shortcut for Cura and select “run as administrator”. Give that a try and see if it works. If not open your task manager and try to start it again, See if the Cura.exe file pops up, if even for a second and let us know.
