If you already had the code 2.1.1, I do executables with the same conditions for both solutions and provide anyone.

Then I try to move your code to stock_6.
I have space in my time.
I feel sorry for you and this original bouquet. :?

If it will be expected by me to increase ELO strength of Sting; I will try to do it myself. Thank you,

Hi Dann,

I am using Windows XP 32-bit and Windows XP Pro 64-bit

In Windows XP 32-bit, the 32-bit application sting-sf-481.exe works OK

In Windows XP Pro 64-bit, the 32-bit application sting-sf-481.exe and your 64-bit application sting-sf-481.exe do NOT work
(despite adding the 64-bit msvcr120 and msvcp120 dll's)
To be noted that the latest sting-sf-47-x64-winxp.exe did work OK
(correcting some old-locks problem ?...)

Hard to know what is wrong.
Possibly CPU limitation if it is an old CPU.
Did you see any error message? If so, what did it say?

For instance, "illegal instruction" almost certainly means an old CPU.

I always link -static both for MSVC and GCC (except when I forget).
;-)
So you should not need any other dll files.

DEPENDS.EXE might tell you something about what was not found.

When I compiled Sting had to put the directive:

#define OLD_LOCKS

directly in archive "locks.h".
Works well in XP.

The problem is inherited of Stockfish 2.1.1 . My 32-bit compitation is done with:
#define OLD_LOCKS
but Ernest may not start it under 64-bit system too.
I am too stupied for this question.
I think it is a problem with XP only.
Under 64-bit, i7, Win 7 my 32-bit version works well.

Ernest, as you can see I am not liked by programmers here.
I am only a worker but I can think too. I dont like programmers and scientists who need an arifical intelligence. It is a pity but here are many people who help them. In the future it is possible that Sting wll be compiled in a better way. Sorry!

I will try to prepare the version Sting-sf-482 using lock.h from the next Stockfish 2.2.2 .
It is very similar to the lock.h file from version 2.1.1 .
One difference which I cant understand is:
#define NOMINMAX // disable macros min() and max()
Should I add it ? :?
