I hope this is the right forum for my question.

So, I have all 5 men files on my HDD and the two files



In the position here (8/2K2k2/3R3P/5P2/8/8/8/r7 w - - 0 10) everything looks good.

But if I play the move 10.h7, Angie starts calculating. Stockfisch is right, 10... Kg7 is a draw, but something is wrong.

Does anyone have an idea why the engine starts calculating here?

If you only have those files then the engine needs to calculate positions that are not in the files. In your case I expect it is calculating the effects of pawn promotion which would need to understand positions with a queen, bishop, knight, or additional rook.
