Emergency Update: download patch to fix data loading problem

If you have started to encounter problems downloading data into Trade-Radar Stock Inspector, you are not alone. Have you seen the program hang up when it reaches about halfway through the download process?

Help is available!

We have detected some changes in data format of intra-day data from Yahoo and we have assembled a patch file that resolves this problem and will hopefully prevent it from happening again in the future.

Click this link to our patch download page and follow the instructions. You will just download the TradeRadar executable file and copy it into the folder where you originally installed the program.

Please feel free to email me if you have questions or issues. Use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the download page.

Running TradeRadar on Windows 7 and Windows 8

Development of the original TradeRadar Stock Inspector software was begun back in the days before Windows 7 and Windows 8 were available.

As these newer versions of Windows have become more popular, we have heard from some users that they are having problems installing and running TradeRadar on their newer PCs.

The good news is that TradeRadar will work just fine on Windows 7 and Windows 8. All you have to do is adjust the Windows Compatibility Settings to ensure TradeRadar runs as intended.

It is recommended that you can apply Compatibility Settings when running the initial installation; however, it is also possible to apply Compatibility Settings after the program has been installed.

Prior to installation


After downloading the install program, go to the folder where you have stored the TradeRadarStkInsp_7_Setup.exe or TradeRadarStkInsp_7_PRO_Setup.exe executable. Right-click on the executable file and select Properties. Click the Compatibility tab. Adjust the Compatibility mode to Windows XP.

After installation


After running the install program, go to the folder where you have installed the TradeRadar executable. Typically, this would be in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Trade-Radar\Trade-Radar Stock Inspector folder.  Right-click on the TradeRadar.exe executable file and select Properties. Click the Compatibility tab. Adjust the Compatibility mode to Windows XP.

In a few cases, it may be necessary to do both steps described above. In other words, change Compatibility Settings on the installation program and run the install. Then change Compatibility Settings on the TradeRadar executable itself.
