Stellarium installed correctly but will not run

Asked by Wayne Schmitt on 2011-11-28

I installed stellarium on my computer and installation went very smoothly. However when I clicked on it to run, it would not open, it acted like something was going to open with the hourglass, but then nothing happened. I'm running a 64-bit Windows 7 with 3.88GB of RAM. What is wrong?

Thanks

But you don't have support of 3D-acceleration. Please install drivers on graphics card from website of manufacturer

Thanks Alexander Wolf, that solved my question.
