I find it most useful for solving "mate in n" problems. You'll need to DL the Nalimov 6 man EGTBs for best mate solving performance.

Set the config setting "Tactical mode" to 1.
My apologies, it appears it isn't available any longer.
Not sure when it was pulled, though, but I haven't been active on this topic, so there might have been new "legal" issues that occurred? Can anyone elaborate?

i7-6700K @ 4.00Ghz 32Gb, Win 10 Home, EGTBs on PCI SSD
Benchmark: Stockfish15.1 NNUE x64 bmi2 (nps): 1277K

So even though I have license keys for Houdini 2,3,4 and 5, I can't use them because Houdini 6 has been activated.
I don't know about that, Graham. I have Houdini 4, 5.01, and 6.03 all active and able to analyze in Chessbase 17.
You're lucky. :)
If you doubleclick on the earlier exes, do they show that your license is still valid?
All of them show licensed to me (more specifically. my email address).
