Main Application, opening databases, install&use UCI Engines (Rybka 2.2mp tested) and playing online (inclusive playing engine vs. engine matches) works after copying the program from a windows partition, it requires mfc42.dll, msvcirt.dll and sview2.dll . You also need to install the fonts from the fritz8 cd.
To change the tablebase path you have to change the "chssbase.ini" in your wine/drive_c/windows/ folder.
After playing online two "runtime error"s pop up, just ignore them and don't restart the program (everything still works fine).
What does not
Watching TV Chessbase or Training Cds with videos
