Same problem here.

Sorry, that's Intel compiler again :(

You can download and install Intel redistributable DLLs package from here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articl ... or-windows
You should put those .dll files needed inside the .zip file. It's better for the end user to not install anything extra.

You need different DLLs dependent on your CPU architecture. Intel don't recommends static linking. I will build and release standalone versions a little bit later.

I don't have any modern book, just use any public book in your GUI.

Thanks for this release. :D Will give it a go in the next days.

The Linux version identifies itself with the following uci string:

id name SmarThink 1.97
This seems like a little slip.

Just out of curiosity:
Why do you use 10 mb as the default Hash size? All other engines I know use a power of 2.

As to hash size I don't know)) It was more than 15 years ago when it was done)
