So the issue you are encountering is HCE takes many seconds to start up.

This is not an issue I have heard reported before.

I notice from your video that the CPU usage on your system is very high near 100% that seems very odd, when I start HCE 1.9.1 it starts within about a second on all my Windows 7 computers, I do notice on my Windows 10 laptop with a fanless mobile chip it takes 3-4 seconds (win10 does scan much more before starting apps).

If you have any internet security/anti virus software installed, that may be verifying HCE components when they run. Please make sure you tell your security software it is ok to run hiarcs-ce and HIARCS Chess Explorer executables by marking them as trusted otherwise they may be scanned every time they start.

Do you have anything else running on the system which could be taking CPU resources?

If the problem persists please email me a screenshot of the task manager listed in cpu usage order when this issue is occurring. Also do you notice anything else other than HIARCS Chess Explorer or hiarcs-ce at the top of the CPU usage list when HCE is trying to start, if so what? As that may be the issue.

I just looked at the video attached to Fahad's post, on YouTube, in fullscreen mode. I notice that Fahad is running Stockfish 8 64 as his chess engine of choice. I wonder if there might be an issue with this engine not "playing nice" with HCE 1.9.1.

I will say that have experienced, on very rare occasions, instances where HCE 1.9.1's opening book failed to load when I launched HCE 1.9.1. It's happened maybe 3 or 4 times out of the 300-400 times I've launched the program since I bought it in October. The problem has always gone away when I closed HCE and then re-launched it. Whenever I play games in HCE, I always use the Deep HIARCS 14 engine, although I do have Stockfish 8 64 loaded as an alternate engine.

I'm certainly no expert, but I wonder if it might just be worth checking out to see if Stockfish 8 64 might be the culprit here...

Could someone point me to the link? I can't find it, even when I ask Google.

Thanks.

Hello, same problem here (Windows 10 Anniversary).

The app actually crashes the kernelbase.dll:
Exception code: 0xe06d7363
Offset error: 0x000eb802

It should be related to a driver / service, since this does not happen when working in safe mode.

Hi ! Smile

I noticed there are two copies of Chess Explorer installed:
the first one is placed in a folder called HCE, the second one in a folder called HIARCS Chess Explorer.

I have no idea why since I installed the software just once, but ...
the interesting part is that the executable in HIARC Chess explorer folder crashes, while the other one in the HCE folder does not.

The version which does not crash is apparently the 1.9 (not 1.9.1).
