I've just released DeepSkyStacker 5.1.6 which is primarily a bug fix release.

 

You can get it from here: https://github.com/d...eases/tag/5.1.6
where you will also find details of the significant changes.

 

Enjoy

David Partridge

Cheers!

 

I posted 2 bugs in the deepskystacker io a few months ago. After a quick test of 5.1.6, I think the 2nd has been addressed, but not the first?

 

https://groups.io/g/...r/message/31287

 

Two items.

1) when saving a file list after modification, there is no default file name in the 'explorer' window. I have to click on the previously saved version and modify from there is desired. Annoying if i want to go to a different folder and save it as ....v2 or something.

2) probably more important, when i have 2 instances of DSS open, if i save a file-list into a directory, the other instance also defaults to this directory, even with unrelated projects. And, of course (as per item 1), no default file name. In this way its very easy to accidentally over-write the filename if you're expecting to be in the same place you were when you opened the file-list.

These are both different from the 'classic' DSS, so i assume bugs rather than features.

Cheers!

Apologies that one seems to have fallen through the cracks - I'm still trying to get organised after a house move.

If you have installed DeepSkyStacker 5.1.6 and it won’t startup, then it is likely that you have hit a problem caused by another application’s install procedure overwriting msvcp140.dll with a back-level version.

 

If this is the case, then you will find that the log file in “My Documents\DeepSkyStacker” contains lines like:

 

00000030 2024/06/19 21:30:57.010 028564 00003520     >00007FFC81353020 (MSVCP140): (filename not available): Thrd_yield
00000030 2024/06/19 21:30:57.010 028564 00003520     >
00000031 2024/06/19 21:30:57.011 028564 00003520     >C:\Users\amonra\Documents\GitHub\DSS\DeepSkyStackerKernel\Workspace.cpp (456): Workspace::Workspace

 

The solution to this problem is to download the latest version of the Visual C++ re-distributable (vc_redist) for x64 from:

https://aka.ms/vs/17..._redist.x64.exe

and running it, selecting the “Repair” option.

For more details of the issue please see:
