Default Chess Assistant 6 patch required

Hi. I am an owner of Chess Assistant 6.0 from way back. I was setting
up my new computer and I can no longer find the free patch to upgrade
to version 6.1. It used to be available on the Convekta website. I
contacted the company that sells Chess Assistant, chessok.com, but the
guy claimed no knowledge of such a patch. Internet searches using
google have been fruitless.

If anyone knows how to obtain this patch, I would be most grateful.

Thanks in Advance.

Try this page from the web archive. I tried the download link for the CA 6.0 to CA 6.1 upgrade and it worked for me.

http://web.archive.org/web/200206021...DE/ca61new.htm

You may also want to check the web archive yourself to see if there were any later upgrades than this one. I clicked on the Mar 31, 2002 archive link for the Convekta home page and that is the only one I tried.

Thanks very much cbseries not sure why Google didn't turn this up, but
all is well. I'm not familiar with how webarchive works. Does Google
search webarchive?

Thanks again.

New news!

Out of curiosity I tried the Convekta links that the web archive was listing without going through the web archive itself and the Convekta website upgrade page link still functions. So the page is still available on the Convekta server though it needs to be gotten to by a direct link.

Here is a direct link to the upgrade page and it list a "build 660" of CA 6.1. So after you used the 6.0 to 6.1 upgrade, I suppose you could apply this 660 build too.

Cheers,

haha funny that that link still works. Just http://www.convekta.com
redirects to www.chessok.com, and tech support there claims no
knowledge of this patch. Go figure.
