KStars crashes repeatedly - FITS-viewer associated? #31091
There is no pattern at all to this crash? no crash log?

I was trying to do other things and did not take the time to look into why it was happening. Probably not helpful but
I'll attach a log from 3 different nights, I have another 4 that all appear to end in a similar way. I think this indicates a crash or more frequently progress stops and the UI is unresponsive, so they could be a forced kill of KStars.

Is this the Windows version? My Ubuntu KStars works great, but the Windows 10 build crashes with FITS viewer.

Hi,

Has anyone managed to find a fix for this issue? Same as everyone else I am trying to run Kstars on a Surface Pro running Windows 10. Kstars crashes every time an exposure is taken with no error being reported. I have tried using low resources mode and deselecting "use FITS Viewer"

KStars crashes repeatedly - FITS-viewer associated? #40795
Hi,

Has anyone found a work around for this issue? I am also trying to run Kstars on a Surface Pro running Windows 10. Kstars crashes every time an exposure is taken. I have tried using low resource mode and disabling FITS viewer but so far nothing has worked. There is no error reported when Kstars crashes.

Opening Event Viewer in Windows I can see the following error:

Faulting application name: kstars.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x5d1c22fe
Faulting module name: Qt5Core.dll, version: 5.12.4.0, time stamp: 0x5d0a2894

Report ID: 942aa12a-3f5d-4786-a3ca-65e03c1fb01d
Faulting package full name:

I hope this can help finding the source of the issue

I’m getting same issue but mine is on a Win 7 machine. Twice last night I was imaging. Everything was running smoothly. Set my sequence of 60 x 10 sec exposures. The first time it got through about 7 before crashing. After resetting I started another sequence of the same exposure length and got through 12. No error message except Windows telling me KStars encountered a problem. Oh and I to had the FITS viewer running.

Can you try the latest nightly? binary-factory.kde.org/job/KStars_Nightl...s-msvc2017_64-cl.exe

See if it still crashes.

Is there a site that lists the changes to the nightly builds?
