this is the original testposition i used:
[D]3N2r1/2K1p3/4Pk2/8/Bp5b/8/2P5/8 b - - 0 1
i used: Monge-compile64-modern on win7, some 6-menTB+all 5-men..."Monge" hits no TB's....McCainV2 has countless hits...parameter-settings are default (1-5,6,7 probe-depth tested and no changes)

No tb- hits shown at my Fritz- installation of Lucas-Monge-x64 modern compile neither. Maybe just not shown in output, but hash isn't counted any bigger by windows taks- manager than without tbs loaded, so I guess tbs indeed aren't used.
Tried full Syzygys in some different endgame- positions.

I can't tell what;'s happening with the windows versions. On the Mac using the terminal ( and Xboard) it appears to work fine

Here is the above position with single core, standard hash.

Could also you try from the terminal or command line maybe it is a communication between the engine and the GUI.

this is the original testposition i used:
[D]3N2r1/2K1p3/4Pk2/8/Bp5b/8/2P5/8 b - - 0 1
i used: Monge-compile64-modern on win7, some 6-menTB+all 5-men..."Monge" hits no TB's....McCainV2 has countless hits...parameter-settings are default (1-5,6,7 probe-depth tested and no changes)
Thanks - will take a look at it when I get home later tonight.
Lucas sent me some Windows and Linux exe's - he's including the matefinder version of McCain as well. Just posted on Github. Can't say for sure if this will help with tb . Please check at the terminal as well. Windows and macOS can accept tb multiple paths with semi-colons, no blank spaces. Linux requires colons so I read, again no blank spaces. Also , I'm assuming you no blank spaces in TB directory paths as I'm pretty sure that would cause it to fail.

I did not try other binaries, but building it with the makefile using:

$ make profile-build ARCH=x86-64-modern COMP=mingw

produced a binary that does not use the EGTB files.

It does load them into memory:

$ ./McCain-v10.exe
McCain v10 by M. Byrne and scores of others...
setoption name SyzygyPath value c:\chess\syzygy;
info string Found 510 tablebases

But searches on sparse boards produce no EGTB hits.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Thanks to everyone for pointing out the error - I am pretty sure it is now fixed, the source has been updated and will post new exe's as soon as I get them. The error was introduced since I was trying to to do a balance acting with limiting probing on 7 men tbs since I have the entire 7 men tb set set on slow HHD drives while not compromising probing on speedy SSD drives which have the 6 men set and below. This code now addresses this issue, restoring normal probing when using the 6 men TBs (whether you have the 7 men or not) and only limit probing when searching a 7 men position with the 7 men tb. Will post here when GitHub has the new exe's. Source on GitHub was updated for those who like to compile their own exe.

A fix has been applied and all of the exe's have been updated.

Thank you, Michael!
Everything fine now as for my Windows-PC, tried Lucas Monge modern compile in Fritz14 with 6mob Syzygys.

Yet in the meantime had two more engine- crashes at long tc analysing, as happened now and then with one but last version of same compile too.
Latest e.g. at this one position,

r1b1qk1r/pn3p2/1p2pp2/3pP2p/1bPN4/4Q1R1/P2N1PP1/R5K1 w - - 0 28

with this one error- message,

"McCain v10 caused an exception. This is a problem in the engine >> go inifinite stop <<

No tbs, Tactical 4, 24threads of 12x3GHz CPU, 32G hash, Win7Pro, Deep Fritz 14.
