What works

Basic usage (Manage and create CBH and PGN files)

What does not

Normal installation failed.

Unable to build trees (CTG files).

Game annotation symbols are not displayed correctly.

Crashes sometimes.


To make it work, I had to install it on a Windows 10 and then copy files from C:\Program Files\ChessBase to ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/ChessBase on my Linux (Ubuntu 19.10).

Then, I had to install the missing dll (mfc140.dll) with winetricks :$ winetricks vcrun2015

What was not tested

Advanced features

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
