The board options seem not to work. I cannot change the square's color or set to default. Also can U indicate step by step how to install crafty with book usage. Thanks

Assuming you are talking about WinBoard 4.5.3:

The -liteBackTextureFile and -darkBackTextureFile options overrule square colors. You would have to switch off the textures first, by running once with Additional options.

-liteBackTextureFile "" -darkBackTextureFile ""

To install Crafty you would have to add a line to the engine list (through the Engine -> Install 1st dialog):


where CRAFTY.exe is the name of the Crafty executable you want to use, and CRAFTY_FOLDER the path name of the folder it is in (e.g. "C:\Chess\Engines\Crafty\"). After that (and saving the settings), rafty should be presented amongst the choices of the first-engine combobox in the start menu.
