Aquarium 2011 saves games by default in <AquariumData>\ABases\CABases\my_games\my_games.pgn. According to Dadi this is the new default.

When I open this database, click on a game and mark it, and then press "delete marked" in the database ribbon, the following error is returned: Failed, Unsupported action.

I have a similar problem. I mark a game in "XYZ.dsn" and then in the Ribbon I click "Delete Marked". But the game is not deleted.

cma6, I am able to delete games from DSN databases.  Here is how I tested it:

1) From database mode, open the my_games.dsn database that comes with Aquarium 2011
2) In the ribbon, click on the "Home-List" tab and then click "New" from the "Game" group.
3) Make some moves in the game and save
4) Close the database and re-open it
5) Select the game by clicking on it once
6) Mark it by clicking on the "Mark" button in the "List" group of the "Home-List" tab.
7) Click on "Delete Marked". You are prompted to confirm the delete with a message that this cannot be restored. Click "Yes"
8) Game is now deleted.

Note this function does not appear to work for the my_games.pgn database which is the default save location for all games you play in Aquarium 2011.

I tried marking the game your way as well as by right clicking. In both cases, "Delete Marked" does not work for me.

Try my simple test above using the my_games.dsn database that came with Aquarium or you can also try a new DSN database to see if the problem is limited to a specific DSN database.

I created a new .dsn database but had the same problem: could not mark and delete.

Maybe some screen shots of your procedure would help. When you mark the game in the database does the entry show up yellow? When you click on "Delete Marked" do you get the confirmation window (Are you sure you want to delete marked games?)?

When I mark a game, that line is yellow.
When I click "Delete Marked", I get the confirmation dialog, which I click "Yes".
However, nothing is deleted. I will work on screen shots, but they won't provide any information other than what you already know.

I experienced the same issue and it has been reported to the developers who are looking at the problem. It seems to arise with dsn databases.

Does not work with pgn or cbh either. Has never worked for me in any Aquarium version. "Failed. Unsupported action." If I want to delete a game(s) I go to the database software, Chessbase, etc., and delete it there.

CBH is strictly readonly in Aquarium. If you need to modify a CBH database, you can convert it first to CDP format.

PGN hasn't allowed game deletion. This will change in the next Aquarium update which allows you to delete games from PGN files. In addition you can undelete games until you compress the PGN file which performs the physical deletion.
