Strange: if you look at Properties of this gui11update.exe (which is huge: 140 MB),
the "Version" indicated is 22.214.171.124
and the signature date is Sept 2, 2008
(while the last gui11.exe I have, size 5 MB, is from Aug. 10, 2010)

Because the wrong link address was used. The correct link is ...
Any previous update has to be uninstalled otherwise the GUI will not work.
But then, what is the difference between your gui11.msi (coming from www.fritzserver.org)
and Akbarfan's gui11.exe (coming from www.fritzhelp.com) ?
And what the hell is that "wrong" gui11update.exe ?
I'm guesssing the msi is a microsoft installer patch standard that updates certain elements of the GUI. Again guessing but the much larger .exe file seems to be a full install and may likely require the disk key to be re-entered.
I'd like to know where you got the 2010 patch from as the latest date shown from the GUI HELP info shows June 3 2009 for the MSI patch!
There are some oddities with these updates because it seems the GUI10 patch that included the updated and bug corrected DF10 engine was only installed when update version 3 was released. Luckily I saved that otherwise as a number of people have found I may have been stuck with the buggy original version when I reinstalled after hardware upgrades - something to do with not using all cores if I remember right?

Well indeed, the gui11.exe, comes from http://www.fritzhelp.com/updates/gui11.exe
(I downloaded it in October 2010)
Properties say: signature date of Aug. 11, 2010, Version 188.8.131.52
It contains a ChessProgram11.exe dated Aug. 11, 2010 and Properties say: Version 184.108.40.206
While the gui11.msi, comes from http://www.fritzserver.org/updates/gui11.msi
(I downloaded it in June 2009)
Properties say: signature date of June 3, 2009, no Version number
It contains a ChessProgram11.exe dated June 3, 2009 and Properties say: nothing
To see what is inside gui11.exe or gui11.msi, you can decompress them with 7-Zip.
Maybe ChessBase can tell you more about this "latest" gui11.exe ...so you can tell us!
Immediately visible differences ...
1. Replay arrows now a la Fritz 12 i.e. buttons - green arrows with blue retract scroll, previously black and red respectively.
2. Engine window stop/go button graphic larger letters and text colour changed to black from white
3. Lower screen/right time control indicates 5m/40 instead of 5'/40 for 40 moves in 5 minutes.
4.Pieces seem slightly better defined.
Much quicker start up in XP home edition but hash still limited to max 1Gb for all engines.
In XP Pro 64 bit it turned out to be a disaster; the exe updater corrupted the configuration and even after uninstalling all GUI 11 installs, a second attempt to update to SP4 caused a similar error. So it would not run. All GUI 11 installs had to be unistalled again and I reinstalled the msi SP installer and it worked OK. So it installed fine without issue in XP Home but messed up big time in XP 64 and I had to reinstall the msi update. Suspect it is a Vista/W8 compatibility update that, on my my XP 64 Pro system, fails to work.

So for GUI11 (I also useXP 64 Pro) , the best update still is gui11.msi (from June 3, 2009)?

Seems to be that way unless someone else finds to the contrary!
please help me if you can. I have exactly this gui11.exe update for Fritz 11, 5.09 MB, signed August 2010. If I install the update for my Fritz 11 I'm getting the following error message in a window when I want to start Fritz (I'm using WinXP 32-bit Professional):
This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."
I installed the whole Fritz 11 and the gui11.exe several time. But I keep getting the same error.
I don't know what to do . . . I like Fritz 11 even if it is old. And I saw that for you worked. Maybe because I have XP Professional and not Home edition? I have no clue. But I would like to make this GUI update functional.
I have Visual C++ 2005 installed in XP Pro 32 bit but not in Windows 10 64 when 2008 was the earliest. I installed both the 32 and 64 bit 2005 versions but to no avail. It still crashes the Fritz GUI 11 in 64 bit O/S. I am using Fritz 14 GUI 64 bit now.
I was gobsmacked until I checked the Program installs and it became clear the Visual C++ 2005 64 bit had been updated after I installed it!
The redistributable packages are relatively small in size 15, 10, 7 MB (or even less). You can see the installed size of such a redistributable package in you control panel add/remove program window.
In the case of this Fritz 11 update, the gui11.exe depends on some "special"/non-standard functions which are in the Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable package. Installing that package, the update will run.
> Did you replied to my post?
Yes I did but when uploading a complementing graphic the Website crashed. Yes, must have been me
I am still unable to update with the GUI11.exe on my second machine because the Visual C++ version 8.06 has not been installed. The original 8.05 and although a later version, the subsequent SP1 update I found from the MS site remains at 8.05 as can be seen in the snapshot along with the error message. Therefore the only difference I can identify between the two machines is the absence of the Visual C++ redistributable v8.06 that is shown in the graphic from my first machine embedded in my previous post.
I can run a repair from the DF11 disk and it works again including the June 3 2009 msi update but not the GUI11.exe.
Graphic indicating crash message after installing GUI11.exe
About the website crashing, I know, rybkaforum sometimes hangs for me too . . . unfortunately.
Just tell me what Windows are using where Fritz crashes? Win10?
Open the link download the DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer, just run it, the installer takes from the internet everything it needs. After install restart the computer and try again. If the same error persists please tell me.
Just install the end user DX and tell me if that fixed the issue.
Although the GUI11 has been superceded several times, it is in my experience the most reliable of the Fritz GUIs but the main drawback is the engine hash limitation of just 2 Gb for 64 bit engines. I subsequently purchased DF13 and then DF14 because the latter was a 64 bit GUI but both were plagued by directory handling issues that still remain in GUI13 as well as Autoplayer 232 issues resulting in its demise from the GUI. On occasion GUI 14 locks a database from having changes made despite running the final update Version 46.
Again, thank you very much for your help in fixing this 9 year old problem!
However needs code while i I bought Fritz 11 without code.
I step cancel and enter in Fritz 11.
Does Fritz 11 however have the same dynamics or is weakened?
> i I bought Fritz 11 without code
The code that needs to be entered is the set of 5 numbers on the front page of the manual. If you bought the disk second hand without the manual and thus without the key-code then I think you probably wasted your money.
Do you think I would have a problem with the engines I have installed?
> The disc is authentic. I purchased the Fritz 11
I do not doubt that but the manual has the required code on the front page and if you enter that then you should not have any problems with the GUI or installed engines from that GUI. Other Chessbase engines that were installed with an earlier GUI may require their respective disk to be inserted before they will work properly.
>The guiNNupdate.msi works for NN=10, 11 or 12. Have not tried 13.
Blowing the dust off of this old thread to ask if anyone might have the gui10update.msi file and be able to share it.
Though I did post in this thread back when it was active I didn't pay close enough attention to what Peter Grayson had written above or else I would have attempted to save the file back then.
Found this on talk chess does it help?
scroll down bottom of page i think there may be instructions on install.
At Your own risk always back up!!!
In my initial post I wrote gui10update.msi file. I made an error in proofreading before posting. I am really looking for the gui10update.exe file.
I have been reading old forum posts on different forums and a lot of those forum posts speak to the gui10.msi updates that were released by Chessbase as having introduced new bugs or defects to the program, even the final released May 20, 2007 update.
I had never heard about the gui10update.exe file that Peter Grayson wrote about (I wasn't paying attention when he mentioned it) and no search engine that I have tried brings up a reference to it having ever been mentioned anywhere except in Peter Grayson's post.
>In my initial post I wrote gui10update.msi file. I made an error in proofreading before posting. I am really looking for the gui10update.exe file.
Akbarfan in his post at the top of the page wrote, gui11update.exe.
Peter Grayson in his post wrote, "The guiNNupdate.msi works for NN=10, 11 or 12."
Not sure now if I should be looking for an exe file or a msi file, but surely a file named "gui10update".
Send Peter a private message he may be able to point you in the right direction
Or contact chessbase

The SP3 update containing the Deep Fritz 10.1 corrected engine is an .exe file ... "setupdeepfritz10sp3.exe" but the final SP6 came as an msi file ... "gui10.msi". The links for the GUI10 and earlier updates are now dead.
Although the updated engine still showed as Deep Fritz 10 in the GUI, the updated SP3 engine file version number was shown as 10.1.0.0 as opposed to the original version 10.0.0.0. I found the updated version was only shown as being installed with the SP3 update so on my new machine builds I update the GUI with SP6 and just drop the 10.1 engine into the appropriate folder from another machine that works fine.
The msi file transports OK but even in zip format the SP3 file gets blocked by most ISP's because it is an exe file, however there is a workaround for that.
PM me what you're looking for and I may be able to help.
I have never tried to have two or more copies of ChessProgram12 opened at the same time, so I do not know whether or not that is possible. Perhaps you could make a copy using Windows Explorer, possibly renaming one, and then run both simultaneously that way. I have never tried to do that and do not know whether or not that would work.
I have the original Frtitz 5.32, GUI 7, 8, 9 10 and 11 all installed on my PC's and have not found any issue with that. A number of engines may be released under the same GUI release version for example GUI 8 covered 13 engine releases, Fritz 8, Deep Fritz 8, Shredder 7, HIARCS 9, Tiger 15 to name just some so if each of these were installed then any associated updates would have overwritten the earlier version. One possible issue is that it is important to install in release sequence. When I installed Deep Fritz 8 after recently purchasing it, I had to run the latest update to bring everything back to last GUI 8 update release.
So if the board was changed in HIARCS 9 for example, then all others using the GUI8 would be affected similarly because of the GUI commonality. Similarly with other GUI releases so if Deep Rybka 3 was installed that used GUI 11, then installing the later release Deep Fritz 11 would update the GUI 11. Any changes made to appearances in Deep Fritz 11 would apply equally to Rybka 3 and vice-versa, again because they use the same GUI so that is nothing to worry about. Similarly then with Deep Rybka 4 and Deep Fritz 12 using the same GUI.
If you want the right start up graphic display for each engine then for earlier versions, GUI 8 and 9, the name of the engine should be added at the end of the shortcut for example ..."C:\Program Files\ChessBase\ChessProgram8\ChessProgram8.exe" -shredder
and the correct start up graphic will be shown. Later versions should add this automatically but if not just add the engine name as above. Space - engine name (but not number)
Important update for GUI 8 is the UCI.dll file. If this is not updated then UCI engines will run much slower particularly in the Playchess server interface.
It is possible to confirm which version updates are installed from the "Help...About" menu that will show the update date reference.
Only caution is as I previously mentioned. With the msi installer, previous update has to be uninstalled through the usual Windows route. If anyone gets into a mess with this as I did once, I ended up uninstalling both Rybka 3, Deep Fritz 11, reinstalling them and then updating with the latest patch.
Edit: I should add that earlier Chessbase native engines run just fine in the later GUI's so the original Fritz 5.32, Junior 7 and Fritz 7 all work in GUI 11. It's actually better to use the later GUI's because the Junior 7 GUI had a problem identifying RAM when it exceeds about 1Gb.
Best way to install multiple gui is have a common database folder and book folder called Database and books and have seperate GUI folders i.e fritz 10,11 and so on.
While installing the dvd install the gui section path to corresponding gui folders but keep the database and book folder common.
This will help preventing some files getting corrupted and boards appearing without any pieces on the board as this can be a common problem.
