    I am still having the same problem as everyone else is having and was wondering could it by chance be something in the software program that is not allowing you to play it and to freeze up. Please let me know.

    Chessmaster 5500 is 13 years old. In computer terms, that's ancient; so getting to run on XP or Vista is extremely doubtful.

    Why not join the 21st century and upgrade to Chessmaster 10th Edition or Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition?
