the command prompt window does not seem to be the problem.
it will not accept the commands given
Might be time to give up on the command prompt window. Navigate to your stockfish folder in explorer. Create a new text file. Name it "stockbench.bat" Ignore the warning about changing the extension. Paste the bench test line into that. Save the file. Double click it from explorer.

Dan do you have stockfish?
it is the most complicated folder of all programs.
it is a folder in a folder in a folder etc.
of course it is easy to get to the exe, there are several exe files.
if any of you guys get mad then I am turning my copy of stockfish in for a full refund.
If what you listed above:

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files\Stockfish\Intel\stockfish-222-sse42-ja-intel.exe
is your executable then your batch file should have the following line:

Code: Select all

stockfish-222-sse42-ja-intel bench 128 1 12 default depth
Batch file should go in the same folder as the executable. Thus you should create:

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files\Stockfish\Intel\stockbench.bat
Good luck

this is the present path.

Ok, I bet the problem is the space between Program and Files
Type (pay attention to the quotes)
c:
cd "\Program Files\Stockfish\Intel"
dir


You should see a list that will include stockfish-222-sse42-ja-intel.exe
then type

Since I can't see how this could go wrong a very silly question: are you hitting the ENTER key after each line?

Do you get a "folder" listing when you type "dir" (without the quotes) then hit the ENTER key?

At least you should be getting error messages that you could report here.

From the bottom left, or the top left, type and <enter>

cd "\Program Files\Stockfish\Intel"

Then

dir

and you are there if you see the exe file

Miquel, what do you see in my command window before I type anything?
bench is not part of the UCI protocol so you can't run it just by doubleclicking the Stockfish executable.

Sorry if too many people start giving advice but the procedure was not entirely clear here either. What I did; I don't have Windows 7 installed here yet, but on my old Athlon computer with XP the command prompt automatically goes to my documents folder. I assume this behaviour could still be what Windows 7 does? What I see is:

Code: Select all

Microsoft Windows XP &#91;versie 5.1.2600&#93;
&#40;C&#41; Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C&#58;\Documents and Settings\E. de Groot>
To go to the root directory from there I think I have to type CD\ Then I see in my command window:

Code: Select all

Microsoft Windows XP &#91;versie 5.1.2600&#93;
&#40;C&#41; Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C&#58;\Documents and Settings\E. de Groot>CD\

C&#58;\>
To go to the root directory is not really necessary I think, because you can just paste the complete path includng the full name of Stockfish without the .exe extension and that followed with the bench command, after what you see in your command prompt window.

So I paste, in my case G:\Chess\stockfish-211-ja\stockfish-211-ja\Windows (the path) and then \ and that followed by the full name of Stockfish and then bench.

I see in my command line window, after (not necessary) having gone to the root directory first, the program is here on G: so that has to be included in the path:

Code: Select all

Microsoft Windows XP &#91;versie 5.1.2600&#93;
&#40;C&#41; Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C&#58;\Documents and Settings\E. de Groot>CD\

C&#58;\>G&#58;\Chess\stockfish-211-ja\stockfish-211-ja\Windows\stockfish-211-32-ja bench
Now I can press enter and the bench will run with the default parameters, at the end of which I see in the window on my slow Athlon the results go by, I only paste the last position here :

thanks Eelco
I am going to go back and look at your post and try to find a more simple way to run this bench but maybe there is not.
Now I will try with the 12 thread SR-2
