Sounds like the download was

Sounds like the download was incomplete. Though for future reference you should post in the Other support forum and not the Off Topic forum Wink

Folder structure

It's a known bug in Stellarium for it to fail if any of the folders in the path to Stellarium.exe (in StellariumPortable\App\stellarium) have spaces. This is not an issue with the portable version, but with Stellarium itself. Just make sure all of the folders have no spaces in them.

I'm also have same problems

I'm also have same problems on a PC with Intel GMA900 and GMA950 graphics. But PC with ATi Radeon X1600Pro and Radeon 9550 works fine. All four PCs use the same Stellarium Portable installer.

Then, I don't know why I did this, I just browsed into the folders of StellariumPortable to run the application directly and it works!?!? I guessed the launcher, StellariumPortable.exe, is the problem.

My solution is I downloaded Stellarium Portable version 0.9.1. Extracted it to get it's launcher and replaced it over the launcher of version 0.10. It solved the problem!
