When you search for Saturn and the planet are not active it find the Saturn nebulae = ngc7009.
Your screenshot show a bug with the coordinates that are set to 0 in this case.
This problem is fixed by

Can you run skychart with the verbose option when you get the access violation.

These are screenshots for Saturn and Jupiter.

The coordinates seems correct.

Do I need to get some other files to test?

I think planets are at the right positions. What will this error affect?

This is probably because the function result was not initialized by default to true with your processor.
Revision 2379 force the initialization so you not get this message:

You can install other files from , mainly if you want to compute the planet position for date in the past or future.
The default file is valid from 2000 to 2050.
