The basic program is absolutely free. You can download and try it together with lots of demo courses. There is a 20% discount for all the full courses available only for the first two weeks.
Learning mode is the main mode of this program, you have to find the best move or a superfine move combination within a given position. To nail down your advancements there are Play and Test modes. This program is designed to be an Internet application that gives you a unique chance to download either well-tried classic courses or the latest ones.

I registered etc but same message....?
I have already purchased the stand-alone versions of many of the Convekta training programs, Total chess training, encycolpaedia of middle games etc..
Are these compatible with Peshk@? Or do I have to but them again?
Thanks for another great product.
Are they compatible with Peshk?
Do I have to buy them again?
How should I proceed to ask for the files compatible with Peshka? (My orders were online orders, so they should be tracked in your system and easily verified.)
About Peshka, I used the link in the original post. Two issues:
- as said on page 2: impossible to close the course browser when no course is listed.
> I cannot close the course browser.
> I have just installed Peshk. Created my account with peshk. and the course browser opened. Click "ok", "close", or the cross on the top right corner doesn't do anything. anyone else?
- using the link installs an out-of-date version. When you check for updates, you get a file winupd7.exe or something like. I can't manage to locate that temporary update file. Any possibility for you to update the downloadable Peshka file please?
A third point is: having a centralized interface is a very good idea. Offering free of charge the new files for the new tool Peshka is very nice tool. However, I have noticed was not displaying the same layong with a course content on the left (from top to bottom of the screen, it is called "navigator" in Peschka), then the chess board, and on the far right the annotations and notation window. Is there a way to get something similar in peshka please?
It is very convenient to have it the original way. Peshka's default layout is too smal for browsing content on the original window.
The font size in Peshka is also too big.
A small suggestion: when you choose the layout, is it possible to choose it from a small sample. I mean, a window showing layouts could let you click on the one of your choice. That would be easier than clicking on a layout button to go from layout to layout.
> - using the link installs an out-of-date version. When you check for updates, you get a file winupd7.exe or something like. I can't manage to locate that temporary update file. Any possibility for you to update the downloadable Peshka file please?
i upgraded using the webupdate button INSIDE the program. Its easy, it downloads and installs itself
I've been trying to contact someone at Chess OK and also Convekta for the last 3 days about buying 3 training programs for the price of 2 but never got an answer. Can I contact you about this and if so, what email? I've already tried info@chessOK.com (Olga).
To Chess OK (Tinefol):
I want to get 3 training programs for the price of 2, as advertised on your websit:
CT Art 3.0 $25
Chess Tactics for Intermediate Player $25
Chess Combinations Encyclopedia
Two questions: 1) are these 3 different programs?
2) If yes, can I pay $50 for the 3 programs via Paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org)?
Also, the phone number shown is 330-488-842 but that is not a good US phone number. Do you have a US sales agent?
What features is developing?
Can I enter an order or pay $50 to get 3 programs?
Also, does anyone at Convekta/ChessOK know the answer to my question about whether the 3 programs are different or are some the same program with different names (not the first time at Convekta for that)?
I don't want to wait for Peshka and the complications of installing a new program.
Question for Tinefol: since it is too complicated to buy 3 programs, can I buy just CT Art 3.0 through Paypal now?
If I have to get Peshka, I probably won't buy anything, since it just adds to the complexity of buying a program. It is supposed to be easy to spend one's money!
I recommend to try the Demo of Peshka. Actually, Peshka is not a Demo software, just the courses (the content) are Demo. Peshka is only a new interface where you will be able to load any course you buy (tactics for various levels, strategy, etc...) or any Demo Course you download. This way you only have to install one software and then Download (after purchasing) the courses you want, but inside the program! is really easy.
I have been navigating (inside Peshka) throught the "online" courses you can buy and I think the content of the courses is the same or pretty similar to the old versions.
So I recommend if you buy something to do it inside Peshka, because the interface is much better (and good looking) than the old versions.
Peshka is freeware by itself, only courses are not. We are incorporating all the existing training programs in Peshka by creating courses.
I'm not interested in Peshka, I simply want to buy Ct Art 3.0. Can I do that by Paypal?
> I'm not interested in Peshka.
Then what are you doing in this thread?
However, I'm now over my 1-week limit to buy a product online, so I'll have to forget about these products.
Based on your link, I tried to buy CT-Art by Paypal. The first few times, Convekta insisted I buy a $25 Peshka card. Finally, after much deleting and starting over, I was able to in theory pay for CT Art directly with Paypal. Not easy to do, I can tell you.
I even got a notice of payment from Paypal, but not from Convekta, and no download link from Convekta, but let's see what happens in a week.
I persisted in buying the product (or maybe losing $25?!) thanks to your good advice!
As for Peshka card - that probably has to do with you using the link from Peshka (as in below post from buffos). Sorry for the problems and delays, its usually smooth and quick.
I never saw "Success" page. Chess OK just took me to Paypal where I paid.
I never received any notification from Convekta, only from Paypal.
My email provider does not block email from Convekta: I got Aquarium by email link from Convekta.
We are sending automatic e-mails from a different e-mail server, which really gets blocked by your e-mail provider.
Anyways, you should have received the link by now.
after installation, whatever I clicked, I got this error:
"Access violation at address 00442094 in module CTArt3. Read of address 0000014c."
So the progam cannot be used. What should I do?
1. Compatibility mode
2. Run as admin
Thank you for the ideas. I'm not really a computer pro, but I believe that all my systems are run as "admin."
But what do you mean by "compatibility mode"? What should I be doing?
Would it be a waste of time to uninstall CT Art and reinstall? (I think it would!)
I see properties/compatibility but nothing about administrator.
Maybe I'm the only one in the last 6 months to buy and install CT Art 3.0. It's an old program.
I remember installing CT Art some time ago, but when I formatted my hard disk it was deleted. The program itself was quite ok (the tasks were interesting and had a good level for everyone), but at some point I couldn't start it with Wine anymore, then again it worked and so on. I guess on an old Windows it runs without problems :)
This is Windows XP Pro (32-bit.)
Thank you for your assistance. I wonder if the problem is the two-step procedure: download and the burn to CD?
Q: I bought training program CT-ART (for download), installed it, but when I try to run it, some error occurs.
A: Training program (download version) is necessary to install from CD with particular structure.
To install CT-ART 3.0 you should do the following operations:
1) Download the file
2) Unpack it. After unpacking the program the folder CT-ART 3.0 will be created.
3) Inside of the folder CT-ART 3.0 there are folders ‘FONT’ and “ENGLISH” which should be copied to a CD. CD catalogue looks like the following:
4) Double click on the ct-art.exe file in the folder ‘ENGLISH’ on the CD to start the installation process.
If it doesn't work, I can only direct you to our technical support at email@example.com
I could not buy anything. I uninstalled Peshka.
Peshka is an exemplar of "How not to sell products."
