Good day All
Can someone please explain to me how to configure Nimzov2000b. I have tried Arena, WinMan, Tom's Winboard Engine Manager but the engine exits everytime.

Thanks

Hi,
I run it under Arena without issue as Winboard engine.

You need a WbNimzo2000b.ini file
here is the content I use:

[NimzoWerkstatt/WinBoard-Nimzo2000b]
HashMemKB=132953
StdBookName=standard.nbk
CheCodeName=WbNimzo2000b.cmp
PwnThreatFlg=1
MultiCutCnt=2
BishopPair=50
MidGameMob=32
EndGameMob=10
Opponent=1
PcThreat=1
FewMvsThreat=0
FutilCutoff=1
FutilStrCutoff=0
RandomBook=0
LearnFlg=1
PEval=6
KSafty=8
PVal=105
NVal=425
BVal=425
RVal=685
QVal=1240
AskHashSz=0

You need additional files such as the .cmp you can read above, the .nbk book file in a "books" subdirectory, a couple of dll files. Do you have those?

Hope this helps,
regards

Good day tibono
I have copied the configuration and pasted it in the WbNimzo2000b ini file. The dll in the folder is WinBoardEng.dll and the .nbk book file is in a subdirectory. Nothing happens in Arena.
Here is the Winboard debug file after I installed WbNimzo2000b with WinMan:
recognized 'normal' (-1) as variant normal
Unable to load lite texture bitmap 'White-WM.bmp'
Unable to load dark texture bitmap 'Black-WM.bmp'
