Q: What's this cool new chess program you mentioned that is free? Do you need to be a programmer to know how to use it?
The Fire chess engine is a separate download from the UCI front end. I recommend using a commercial program as the front end. From Fritz you click on "Add UCI engine" and then "Change main engine".
If the Fire download is a .zip or .tar file then you might want to download the free 7zip utility to extract the files.
