KStars/Ekos windows client crashes with no reason was created by maxthebuilder

Hello,
Some days it goes without a problem but often KStars just crashes after a few frames.
This kind of crash comes out of the blue when everything was set, aligned and fine.
A sequence was defined and shooting was started.

Tonight it crashed after 33x60 sec frames. While I was away from my Windows desktop.
Good thing is that when I restarted - it remembered everything. I just needed to recalibrate/restart autoguiding and after that it was ready to continue shooting.

Now it's on the 82nd frame out of 90. I guess, it won't be crashing anymore tonight even though I am actively using this PC (typing this post, doing my taxes in TurboTax, etc).

Just sharing my experiences,
Thanks!

Last night I tried 100% mobile setup - everything was running on RPI (Stellarmate with a recent nightly). 10" HDMI monitor, keyboard and mouse also connected to RPI.
All went exceptionally well - polar alignment worked as it should (no "refresh" problem as with the Windows client), autoguiding worked great (struggled to calibrate it, but once calibrated it was perfect) . Plate solving was fast. No crashes.
Happy. Thank you!
Attaching the result - Pinwheel. 120 x 60 sec, gain 150 + 60 x 120 sec, gain 200 - 4 hours total exposure. ZWO ASI294MC Pro @ -10C. With Optolong L-Pro filter. Very light polluted location.
Tomorrow, I will go to a remote and darker place - hopefully it will work there too (never tried my setup away from home yet).
