Default Program to display attacked squares?

My apologies for crossposting this and if it's a trivial question.

Many years ago, I had a Mac program which for a given configuration would
display all "attacked"/"supported" squares on the chessboard using different
color intensities to indicate the "strength" of the attack.

For example, using a red color gradation scale from 1 (P) to some high number
(39?), the attacked squares would show different color gradations depending on
which pieces attacked the square.

A square attacked by a pawn, would show the lowest gradation hue above the "no
gradation" index on the scale, while a square supported, say, by a R, a B a Q
and a P, would show the relative color intensity gradation (5+3+9+1=18). The
latter would make the square glow bright red.

Does anyone know if any such program exists for Win XP today?

Many thanks,
--
