OK. Got it to work on my second laptop, with the dll's of the earlier 
version from 2018. I had lost track of it somehow. A bit confusing as 
that was already version 4.0.
So, something not right indeed with my first laptop it seems. It works 
fine otherwise, but I shall see what I can do.

I am certainly interested.

Interestingly: I copied the following dll's from the laptop where 
Domenator /did/ work, to the one where it /didn't/, and Lo! it works 
now! Go understand.

freeglut.dll (23-3-2018)
msvcp140d.dll (19-1-2018)
ucrtbased.dll (14-8-2016)
vcruntime140d.dll (23-3-2018)

Somehow, the more recent versions I downloaded a couple of days ago did 
not do the job?!? [beyond my ken]

Good to hear!

I'd like to try the Domenator out as well, but I'm wary of installing .dlls
(Windows 10). It's "beyond my Ken" too :=P

Any tips you can give as to where they would go? Or problems to expect?

Hi Kenneth!
I am like you. The best you can do is to put them in the same folder as 
the application itself. So, my Domenator folder contains:

Domenator.exe
freeglut.dll
msvcp140d.dll
ucrtbased.dll
vcruntime140d.dll

This works fine, except as I said earlier, with the most recent versions 
of the dll's. I attach a zip with those which work for me as I am not 
sure how or where you could find those particular versions. I copied 
them from one of my other folders.

A tiny drawback of this method might be if you have several folders with 
different applications and all containing copies of the same dll's. That 
happens on my system. However, most dll's are quite small and take 
little space, and I have not been aware of any interference. But more 
knowledgeable people might know.

A couple of things I have forgotten since earlier versions:

1) how do you save to INC, STL, OBJ? clicking those buttons doesn't do 
anything.

2) How do the different 'Material' options work?

Hi Kenneth

I hope you'll succeed, Thomas has explained the problem and there is nothing I
can do.

Enjoy

Hi Thomas,

The STL and OBJ Button generate name.STL and name.OBJ files whiche you can read
in a lot of 3d-viewer (I use glc-viewer), and it should be compatible with 3D
printers (but I don't have access to any, so I haven't tried)
The INC button generates the POV file, these 3 files are generated in the
directory above the one where the exe stands (maybe not a very good idea)

If you don't declare any material, you will have to declare one in your pov-file
for the entire union, but you can be more specific :

1) Dome material is the same as the pov definition for the entire object
2) Face material will affect the mesh part only
3) Struts materials, you can define different material for parallel an meridian
struts, major and minor struts
4) Diagonal struts, same thing for the diagonals (usually you don't want to see
them, but I have an exemple ...)
5) Spheres material, usually the same as one of the struts tha the sphere
completes

In the image trashbin, the faces are not generated, only the major parallele
struts have a non 0 radius
In the franc-contois image (it is a dome I saw in a french xountryside called
lead material.

Ah! OK. Confusing indeed, especially as the *.DOM file goes into the 
same directory as the exe.

Also, saved *.DOM files when loaded again, do not show the originally 
saved object, but a default half sphere.

I am confused about the 'Materials'(and the objects). Do I have to use 
the same names as those given in the droplist for WireFrame/Flat Faces/ 
Smooth Faces? Whether I do that or not, no materials are exported, nor 
is the geometry subdivided according to different materials. In Poseray, 
I get one unnamed_group (a half sphere) with one unnamed_material 
(white), whatever I do.

Hmmm... I am unable to reproduce this...
