first install and first run Stellarium opengl2 issue

Asked by omalley on 2016-08-07

Hi good evening tried to install portable stellarium 0.13.3 with xp sp3 1.6ghz 1gb ram (Intel Celeron 420 @ 1.60GHz,Intel 82945G Express chipset family)
 and open gl issue, followed advice in port apps web "Legacy Mode: Older PCs and PCs with lower-end graphics chipsets may need to set Stellarium to run in software rendering mode. This can be accomplished by copying the AppNamePortable.ini file from the StellariumPortable\Other\Source directory to the StellariumPortable directory, renaming it to StellariumPortable.ini and then editing the file so that the first line reads AdditionalParameters=--angle-mode and then saving."
still having issues, since message appears : no open gl 2 on the system,please upgrade hardware or use MESA or an older version.
Using: StellariumPortable_0.13.3.paf.exe
Any clues? <email address hidden>
Thank you

This FAQ is still valid after 2 years...

Congratulations to keep your computer alive for so long. But this ancient chipset (2005) is not able to run Stellarium 0.13 and later.
I suggest this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #2570: “Common problems with version 0.13”.

Can you help with this problem?
