I'm using StockFish 15 (I've tried with SF14... 10) with ChessBase16 (a very few days ago I updated it from this same version 16).

I have the syzygy3456 men completed.

I have just a few WDL and DTZ in my disc (M.2). But StockFish doesn't recognize this files. Maybe because each 7men file is very heavy? I don't know.

I have set the ChessBase for a special folder for syzygy7men. Doesn't work.

I have set the ChessBase only with the 3456men folder (and inside this 3456men folder I have copied these few 7men files).  It doesn't work.

Maybe the WDL works (I don't think so, but I am not sure). But the DTZ doesn't work.

When I set up a position with just 7 men (corresponding to a 7men file I have in my disc/folder), the StockFish doesn't show me the result of each possible move. When this position I move it and 1men dissapears (so it is a 6men position/ending) then the Stockfish YES... it shows me all the possible moves with its results (+-, -+, =).

Did you already know about this problem/bug? Is it a bug/problem from StockFish or it is from this Chessbase version (16, with updates included).

18 months ago I installed this syzygy 7men in my disc and chessbase (already 16 version, but with no updates yet), and I guess that I used Stockfish 13 o 14, and then... I think it ruled, it was working, my syzygy 7men files when I set up a position with only 7men. I cannot garantee it (can't remember), but I would say that it was working.

Now it doesn't work. No work with StockFish 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10.

Thanks for your attention.

Sorry. I was meaning about the 7men collection. I have complete the 3456men collection. But just a few of 7men files...
