Searching for NGC or Messier causes a crash (Windows 7)



    In Pro Plus - searching for NGC objects cause a crash

    In Pro - searching for Messier objects causes a crash




    Instead of using 'begins with" try using one of the 3 other choices:- "contains", "is exactly" or "ends with" <--- found above the Find search field.


    Please see the attached image.


    This is a known bug that will be corrected in a future update.

      This may be an issue connected to WIndows updates.  Please go to Control Panel ---> WIndows Updates ---> install all essential/important updates.  If that works for you please let us know here.  Thanks.

      Hi Arthur,

      This issue is resolved in SN7. There will be no further updates for SN6. We are working on SN7 now.

      I encourage to upgrade to SN7.
