It is pity he no longer works on Gandalf, cause I was really expecting Gandalf 8 by now, but will have to be happy with 2-cores version of gandalf 7. Can not he at least add unlimited number of Threads for Gandalf 7 to use ? :) 2-cores is like a single core, does not make that much of a difference. :(

Gandalf 7 does not work on my computer (Windows 10 64bit) with the ChessBase GUI - it terminates instantly with an exception.

Did anyone experience the same and was able to solve the problem?

Yes, it works over here.

Windows 10 Pro 64bit
i7 4790 3.6Ghz
Chessbase 14
Fritz 15

Check to make sure OS is not blocking it.
