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.
