If eCAL won't start...

Post by craftedge »

If your copy of eCAL is not starting up and just quickly flashes the opening logo screen and then closes, make sure you have the latest 1.013 (or higher) installed from

If after installing the update and it still does not start, please try the following:
Immediately after starting Sure Cuts A Lot, hold down the 'D' key on the keyboard in Windows or the 'Control" key on a Mac. Keep it held down and after a few seconds, it should ask to load default settings. Click ok and see if it loads then.

Welcome to the SCAL User Forum.... which provides help and promotes sharing of ideas and projects for users of Sure Cuts A Lot software.

To get the answers you need for your software (game), you'll need to find a forum or Facebook group devoted to that product. Good luck!
