Free HIARCS Chess Software Programs
On this page we will be hosting an archive of FREE Chess Software. This will include many of the HIARCS chess programs released over the last 20 years. These older software products are still the copyright of Applied Computer Concepts Ltd. and All rights are reserved.
We ask that no one else hosts these software downloads. We hope to make many of the HIARCS chess products sold over the last 20 years available to everyone for free. This will require many hours of work to resurrect each product so it can be made available. If we find others are hosting these downloads we will cease this activity and many of the more recent HIARCS chess programs and engines will not be made available.
If you have a website of your own we would appreciate you adding a link to our website by copying and pasting the link and description below onto your appropriate web page. A text html file of the link and description is also available.
