not a valid Win32 application

Asked by Wayne Daniel on 2013-04-21

I have been running stelarium.exe from a February 2013 download.

From which website you download Stellarium? What size of Stellarium's installer you have?

Another question is "how do you download it" - if you use "save target as" on the stellarium.org download links instead of clicking them, you won't get a valid executable file, because they point to the SourceForget download page, not the files themselves.

Can you help with this problem?
