FreeCAD v0.20.2

Post by NHSA_Rainer »


I was using v0.20.1 and today I searched for an upgrade and there is v0.20.2. I downloaded it and installed it (FreeCAD was not running). It just does not start ...

I reverted to v0.20.1 and it works normally.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks Rainer

you are not providing enough information...

what OS are you running? where did you get the new version from? how did you install? what shows up when you try to launch it?

also check if any of the known problems affects you: viewtopic.php?t=30573

Hi and Sorry,

Did forget that for this the About window is important

I got the v0.20.2 from the download page of the FreeCAD site.

The old version was still installed but not running and I installed by clicking on Install after opening the downloaded file.

I click on the Desktop icon, the mouse starts as a moving circle and after a short moment circle disappears but nothing starts.

Will take a look into the message link.
