Fritztrainers

I have tons of "Fritztrainers" which I assume are made for Fritz, and have actually played them many times in Fritz 14 on Windows 8.1

Does anyone know if there is an alternative for Ubuntu 14.04?

These Fritztrainers comprise of .cbh files for the moves and .wmv for the videos.
Thanks in advance beautiful community.

Windows, 7 and activation

It never worked for me with Vista. After getting a new laptop with 7 it was not activating saying it was already activated in another computer. I wrote them email, they deleted the activation register of the old laptop and it has been working nicely and as activated since that.
