Yea ChessX is nice. I like it a lot.
i have tried several times to install stockfish on my laptop but in vain.Am using windows 8 and am now confused.does it work on windows 7 or even on 8.what is recquired to install it. help plizzz!!
Yes, it does, and it does not "Install"- it's a sole portable executable.
But it is just a console application, you will see nothing useful running it alone. You must access it with a GUI plugged to it via the UCI interface.
Download Lucas Chess(or any of the other chess programs) then "install" StocKfish into Lucas or Arena or any of the other programs that chess engines run through. I used to pimp Arena. I really like that program. But Lucas Chess has really grown on me. It has some really nice tactics exercises installed. And it's easier to get started on Lucas than Arena. I like them both. So take your pick or search out something else that suits you.
thanx @spiritbro 77. arena has worked
I run Fritz 12 portable with Houdini 4. I wanted to update to Stockfish 6. Downloaded it from the official site and tried to create a new UCI in Fritz but it wouldn't let me. It said sth like "xenocode error 0xD0000002" or whatever. Tood bad. I really wanted to use Stockfish
Well... that "Fritz 12 portable" is hardly an official release, is it?
You can ask your money back from your local distributor... but the problem is not in Stockfish.
