Hi Guillaume
 
I just tried the Win 8 with a satisfactory build. This runs at 80 fps with 8 catalogues
 

I had a lot of trouble with the windows build at first related to MinGW 4.8. and paths to the Qt files but that was sorted out by fixing the environment variables.
I installed the source and built it first but that that was missing some files.
I then ran mingw-get-setup.exe but it was also missing some files
I then merged both systems and the mingw compiles started to work.

Hi Guillaume
 
Eureka! it shows stars now and all the other things that rely on star positions. Your change was only to the cmakeLists.txt. 
 
No start up splash but Stellarium starts in about 3 seconds and runs on this old XP at 30fps with 7 star cats (no stars 80fps)
 
I will go and test it on the Win 8 lap top

Hi Guillaume
 
I will give it a go. Should only take about 15 mins to find out. I am building the release version now. I did the Debug version first and have not tried a debug version since the release versions compiled
