Preform crashes when connecting to printer


#1

Freeform V3.0.1
firmware rc-1.19.12-75
OS Win 7


#2

Have you tried preform in compatibility mode?


#3

Problem was windows, I should have turned off updates to prevent windows updates from breaking things. I tried a newer version of preform and the problem is fixed.


#4

You really shouldn’t turn off Windows Update. Just remember next time to make sure you’ve got the most current version of Preform. Windows Update = Good.

I have a dedicated system to run the slicer. The last thing I want to happen is to turn it on one morning and find windows has broken something and I have to spend most of the day trying to fix it before I can run a print job. Should I ever need to update preform again I can always turn on the updates on a day I don’t have any jobs to run and then turn them off again once the new preform is running.
