    Got Fritz 12, installed it and activated it. It runs, Fritz talks to me, I can paste a game....

    But- when I try to update it tells me I have ver 1 and ver 7 is available- but is totally unable to connect to the server to perform the update (Error 0). Clearly, since I was able to activate, and it can advise me of the latest version, it can get to the i'net from my computer.

    Also, cannot save a game, create new database, or do any of the really essential things.

    Anyone else have similar prob? Could it be associated with running on a 64-bit system?I could prob install on my old system.....

    Contacted Chessbase, but no reply so far. Most annoying!

    I don't have Fritz 12, so I can't help directly. But I don't think it's because of your 64-bit system, since Windows 7 is the preferred OS. Here's a link with the system requirements, along with a number of video tutorials for installing, configuring, etc.

    P.S. You'll want to ditch the talking part of Fritz, since that gets old after about, oh, say 5 minutes.
