I simply launch the new exe contained on the downloaded folder placing it for example in c:\ (different from the original) since all config data are stored on the separate folder: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\BanksiaGUI\

before lauching the exe, MAKE A BACKUP OF THIS FOLDER ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE A VERY OLD BUILD

so if you have issues you can quicky overwrite the new with the old one returning to the previous build.

Sorry but I really don't understand what we have to answer in field CONFIRMATION OF REGSITRATION ?
I am French and perhaps my logical reasoning is not good for that ?

What does it mean ?
We must not put terms which speaking about flower, graphics ?
a term means one or several words ?

I have always : You have provided an invalid answer to the question.

Lichess.org BanksiaGui client is wonderful: you can watch your live games from web, is multi-platform Win, Mac, Linux, offers a lot of games statistics, too! More stable than another well know commercial software available only for Windows.

I'm there with two accounts: ProteusSF-Lite and ProteusSF together with Stockfish, Eman, Brainlearn, Marvin and 140 other bots. Try it! Stronger engines (almost unbeatables) are: Mate-AI, Caissa-x, ToromBOT and Iwantedtoplaychess.
