Monday, October 25, 2010 8:20:00 PM

Introduction

On this page step by step instuctions on loading the Chess Tiger 2007 UCI engine in some other interface. The procedure is similair for other UCI compatible engines. In this article it is assumed Chess Tiger 2007 is installed in its default directory. Default this is under:

c:\Program Files\Lokasoft\ChessPartner5.4\engines\ChessTiger2007

If you want to move the engine to another directory, ALWAYS move the content of the entire directory. Moving just a single file won't work. Also be aware if you move the directory, the native engine may stop working.
