I have the latest version of Chessbase 13, I have bought a license and activated it online. For some reason, when I open a new board and go to the Home tab I do not have the menu item Create UIC Engine button.

Home menu

As you see I have the choices Default Kibitzer, Add Kibitzer and Remove Kibitzer, but no additional choices while the image in the manual shows there is a small button below Remove Kibitzer that opens additional choices.

Have anyone else experienced this? I have emailed Chessbase support, but they have not seen this before.

  • If Chessbase hasn't "seen" it before and unable to help you, I don't think anybody her could.

At the end of the line Remove Kibitzer, there is "UCI" written in red. Click on that.


It is the size of the window that matters. Make it smaller and they will become available (I assume the same is tru for making it larger, but I can't verify as this was my max screen size).

    This works, but suggestion by A passerby is simpler.
