Bug found in TradeRadar Install Program! New version available.

To my great embarrassment, I discovered a problem in the Full Install of version 1.3 of the TradeRadar software. The version 1.3 Update Install works just fine but I see that many of you downloaded the full version.

In actuality, I found not one but two problems. The first problem is in the traderadar.ini file. There should be just one simple word in it: TradeRadar. Instead, it contains TradeRadar-test. This slipped into the install from my testing environment. This is a problem that is easy to fix and some of you may already have done so. It is mentioned in the help file that the name in the INI file must match the name you set up in the ODBC Data Source Administrator. If you followed the instructions in the helpfile, just go into the traderadar.ini file using Notepad and remove the "-test" and save the file. That should make the error at program startup go away.

The second problem is that the program is actually version 1.2 instead of version 1.3! No easy fix here. You will have to download the true 1.3 version. A quicker approach is to download the version 1.3 Upgrade. (You will still have to fix the traderadar.ini file as described above.)

In any case, the Full Install now has all the correct software in it and is available on the Download page.

My sincere apologies to all of you who downloaded the version 1.3 Full Install and encountered problems. I encourage you to give the true version 1.3 a try.

Cant install 3.0 on XP SP2. 1) scrrun.dll fails to register itself. 2). After uninstall, cant install again - always get message cant find ST6UNST.EXE. 3). ACCESS error code 0x80004005. Although I have managed to have it installed after fixed the above 3 problems, TradeRadar still has problems to load the database. After uninstall and try to reinstall it again, run into problem 2).

Please dont provide something like this to waste your user's time.

Please, please, please. It is so helpful to read the Help file to learn how to set up the database connection. The Help file is online and has lots of good information on how to install the software.
