It sounds like you don't have Polyglot installed. What platform are you on anyway? Is this WinBoard + Windows, or XBoard + Linux or what?

WinBoard + Windows.

Can you give a link to the Polyglot binary for Windows? I compiled, but now other error: "POLYGLOT: pipex_open()"

It should be included in the standard WinBoard binary distribution.
