Can you look for the file cdc_trace.txt located in directory C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\Skychart
It may contain information about the problem.

There is no such file in this directory, just the attached one. The path is C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Skychart.
There is a second directory, C:\Users\Default\AppData but nothing there.

skychart.ini (8 bytes)

This file is only the empty template that is copied here by the installer. This show the program never started or even try to start because some other files and directory must be created here immediately on the first run.

One possibility is you use a paranoid anti-virus that don't allow anything not in it's whitelist.
Can you check for that?

I´m currently in business trip, but in a few weeks, as soon as I get back I will check it.
I have others application installed as well, and they run. The only exception is CdC
I will let you know

As Renato, only empty skychart.ini file in the AppData\Local folder.
Windows 10 - 1809 (17763.348) fresh install.
Windows build-in antivirus only.

Thank you for this information Frank!

libeay32.dll is a Openssl library used to download asteroid and comet elements from https sites.
It look like it as a problem with win10 1809.

I make two change, update the dll to the latest version, and add code to ignore an error with this library.

Can you download a new test version and try if this solve the issue.
The test download for windows 64 bit:

or for windows 32 bit:

If the program run can you try the menu "Update/comet elements" to be sure https work.
