Default Chessmaster 9000 vs. Fritz8

I have these two programs installed on two computers connected in
network. Is there a way to make them play against each other? How can
I do it?

You need to do more than just choose "engine match" because the CM9000
engine has to be incorporated into the Fritz GUI as an UCI engine (Universal
Chess Interface). There are excellent instructions at
http://nonyz2.tripod.com/The_King_OPK.htm on how to go about this. I've done
it, and it works fine.

Only then can you do an engine match.

Actually, it should be possible to have their *engines* play against each
other - without the interface etc. That's probably best to evaluate their
playing strength.
Search for "Engine Match" in Fritz.

I bet 6:4 for Fritz by the way... :-)

Hmmm, I'll don't drop to that... Everybody knows that Fritz gives himself more
"resources" than to "opponent's engine". Playing on two same computers will give
the best result.
BTW, in this case (I was try this with CM8k & F7) result was 6:2 for CM8k.
Cheers...

It works fine. But still, I can do engine match only on one PC, and I
would like to do it on two PC's, but they won't connect via autoplay.
