chessbase.com's online database I'm having problems with the chessbase online database. I reach the database page but the java window fails to load. I messaged cb but they weren't much help. Any ideas to fix it?
I use IE6.

not sure but many java aplications where designed for ie5.5 and dont work with ie6.0
i'll try from work if i have time, we have 5.5 there

Not sure about the specifics.... I moved to "XP" a while back and discovered many JAVA applets failed to load (consequence of the litigation action against Microsoft where they had to open their code up to competition etc).

I searched for a "Sun/Java" site and downloaded the latest version of Java (virtual Window in MS speak) and have had no problem since,

Give it a try... and good luck :-)

all right it works for great under ie5.5, takes about 3sec to load, though

Another database Another database is at
www.chesslab.com

This was, as far as I know, the first one online (with same functionality as Chesslive). It is faster loading, and it is a bit more 'elite' than chessbase. That means, only higher rated games.
