Worked great on Windows 11 without any modification or tweaks. Was so relieved that it was virus-free. Still, good practice to scan the files for viruses with an anti-virus program. Didn't need to install the patch, it downloaded automatically from UbiSoft during installation. Be sure to install the DirectX driver during setup, you'll need a copy of that older driver to play the game (won't work without it). There's both an English and French version of the game, hence the larger file size. Owned several versions of this game when I was younger and loved the voice lessons and analysis. Now I'm introducing my son to the game. Thank you for making this available. Would have bought the software if it wasn't 17 years old lol.

I still use chessmaster to train myself
Chessmaster academy and IM Josh Waitzkin tutorials are awesome
I first used it in 2011 I think when I started playing chess
I used Chessmaster3000 and 8000 at that time
I even saved to my cloud storage so I can provide to chess beginners
