    Hi all

    In an effort to get my repertoire in my head rather than in my database I recently input a couple of my main lines into Fritz and saved them in the Opening Training file in the Fritz program file.

    The opening trainer worked for a few minutes, then crashed. I closed Fritz and tried again, same thing happened as soon as I tried to access the moves I just entered. I deleted my file and tried again but now Fritz crashes when saving.

    This is possibly a Vista issue but has anyone had this problem with XP? If necessary I'll fork out for the Vista-compatible Fritz 12 but if there's something else going on I could save some cash.

    Cheers

    What happens if you uninstall Fritz and reinstall it again?

    No different unfortunately. I also tried changing to XP service pack 2 compatibility in Properties but no joy.

    Does your Fritz work ok?

    Resisting the temptation to make an 'on the Fritz' gag... Yes, other than the Opening Training issue Fritz doesn't seem to have any problems.

    I do Vista. And this has also its peculiarities.

    I think the standard trick is to reinstall the non working program.
    Then reinstall the OS.
    This is actions that doesn't need any special skills. If this doesn't work either, then you have to call support for the software in question and see what they will say about the problem. If they has a fix for the problem, they send it to you. But often enough they cannot help you. Then you are on your own. If the software is important enough perhaps you would buy another computer and pray that the software works on that one.
