Version 1.6.0 not starting

Post #1by lidocorc » 23.04.2010, 12:30

I installed Celestia v1.6.0 on a machine of a friend of mine (GPU: GeForce 6150 onboard, WinXP prof., SP2), not the one indicated in my signature. This computer got the latest NVIDIA graphics driver available installed just before. After starting it, Celestia came with an error message: "Celestia.exe has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.". To give it a try, I installed the older version 1.5.1 which I downloaded from sourceforge (after having deinstalled v1.6.0 before) - and: the older version worked properly. Does anybody have any idea why v1.6.0 is complaining about this machine and - even more important - what to do (or try) to get v1.6.0 running?

Thank you.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+, 2 GB RAM, GeForce 8300, Windows XP SP2, Celestia 1.6.0
