What works

After the installation workaround, the activation works.

Features working:

  • Normal use (load, edit, manage CBH and PGN files), symbols and diagram
  • Build and laod CTG files
  • Fast Reference Search, Fashion and Endgame Index
  • Plan Explorer
  • Engines
  • Instant Evaluation Profile

What does not

The "normal" installation from the installer failed (any serial number was denied).

There is also a display bug on the progress windows. When the progress percentage and remaining time are updated, the old progress percentages and remaining times are not erased. It quickly becomes unreadable.

Workarounds

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
