AAII offers weekly and month-end data updates to Stock Investor Pro subscribers. These files are typically available for automatically through the Stock Investor Pro and for download from the Weekly Data Updates section of the Stock Investor area of the AAII Web site by Sunday morning (Central time). You can subscribe to the AAII Stock Investor RSS feed to receive notices when the new weekly update files are available.
The first time you open Stock Investor Pro after installing the program, you will be prompted to log in. The Stock Investor Pro log-in and password are the same log-in and password use for the AAII website.
Each time Stock Investor Pro is opened, the program will connect to our server to check whether there is a data update available. If there is, the program will ask whether you would like to update the data via the following window prompt. You may choose to select the weekly or monthly update, or choose to skip the update.
If you choose to update the data, Stock Investor Pro will download the update file from our servers and automatically run the file after it has finished downloading. A process bar will appear while the file is being downloaded. After the download is completed, it may take your computer a few seconds before the automatic update starts running. Please be patient during the time. Before the automatic update runs, you may receive a security warning. You must allow the file to run in order for the update to work properly.
If so, click Run to continue.
If you are satisfied with the settings, click Next to start the installation process.
Click Finish to launch Stock Investor Utilities, which will perform a series of database management operations.
