Installing Chessbase Opening Encyclopedia 2016 error

Post  Bolshovik on Fri Oct 07, 2016 8:33 am

Dear All

I have got the full package of chessbase opening encyclopedia 2016 in the form of five files which are the following

Opening Tree 2016.ctg
SetupOpeningEncyclopedia2016.exe
Opening Tree 2016.cto
Opening Tree 2016.ctb
Opening Tree 2016.ini

then i tried to click on the "SetupOpeningEncyclopedia2016.exe" and after extracting and installing i never find the executable file of the program in the program files. (i.e. i don't know how to open the program after installing it)

knowing that i have installed it on D: drive not the main C: one. also i run it once as a normal user and another as an Administrator but no hope.

can anyone configure the main solution for this problem?

Installing Chessbase Opening Encyclopedia

Post  e4player on Fri Oct 07, 2016 12:30 pm

Hi Bolshovik the
Opening Tree 2016.ctg /Opening Tree 2016.cto /Opening Tree 2016.ctb /Opening Tree 2016.ini
is the full Opening book and will show no games ,
to get it to work start up fritz chouse the openings book tab,on the list with notation ,training ect
then just find and load the book from there,
The SetupOpeningEncyclopedia2016 are the games used to make the book
and then there are the Theory books made from the OpeningEncyclopedia2016 as well in the .exe,

To unpack the SetupOpeningEncyclopedia2016.exe download 7zip install it
then right click on the SetupOpeningEncyclopedia2016.exe and chouse 7-zip extract here ,this will unpack the frist part
after that you will see a other .exe and do the same to unpack it with 7 zip
this will give you all the database files with games,move them to were you want to use them from then start up chessbase ,
on the left you will see were you can search your pc and find the Opening Encyclopedia 2016 and the Theory books.

if you have alot of your stuff on a other hard drive you can change and set the default database path
in ( file ) top let tab in chessbase chouse /options / then look for the folders tab you can change it from there.
hope this helps in some way.

Thank you very much for your reply

You said i must install 7 zip to install the package.. i just would like to illustrate if installing the package from the .exe file only is enough or still i should unpack through 7 zip ??

hi its ready what way is easy for you
i like useing 7zip because i know were all the files are going when there unpacked
and there won't be anything left behind on my hd that i dont know about.
The setup has to unpack its self and then the other zip file in it lol
so will take the same time useing the exe or 7zip.

chessbase is better at searching databases and reading ebooks ect if thats what your looking to do ?
you will need fritz as well to injoy a few games also chessmaster is very good,it still looks and playes great
after all these years the full name is chessmaster grandmaster edition
you should give it a try if you dont have it yet.

ps,fritz and chessbase should be made into just one program
but i think they make more money they way the make them.
