Same with Hiarcs CE 1.8 and Arena 3.0, in the latter one with the error- code you gave too.
DS12 says "this is not an UCI- engine", Hiarcs as well, DF14 simply doesn't install.
No .dll- file in unzipped folder.

Win7 Prox64.

Thanks to you and Werner
This engine works for me in F13, and Arena.
It does not work in HCE, because after sending isready, the engine will respond with readyok, so HCE is also waiting.

I can make it work in HCE however by using the AquariumBookAdapter. The ABA successfully communicated with the HCE interface.

It seems this engine is manipulating the priority and cpu affinity.

There are more than 20 module/dll files associated when this engine runs.
Correction:
the engine will not respond with readyok
From HCE engine log.

Hey AA !

A response from the top of a nice mountain ( and a superb night):

Alfil 15.7 needs .NET Framework 4.5 version. Windows XP îs incompatibile with this version !

SilvianR :wink:

Any chance of a recent Linux compile?
The download page https://esacosta.wordpress.com/home-2/descargas-alfil/ has only the old Alfil 12 MT for Linux.

Compile from sources?

Alfil sources are available here. The last version is 15.8.16 (16th August, 2015) and there are many variable names in Spanish.

Probably you or someone else can compile Alfil for Linux from sources. Good luck.

Regards from Spain.

64 bit binary built with VS 2015:

As for distribution of the sources, see parent msg.

Requires dotnet 4.0
