I have been going crazy trying to update my QT to the 3.9.8a version.
I had QT 3.9.8 version running on Windows7 (64-bit, 8-core machine) when, just like the others, TDA backfill stopped working. I located the patch file by reading this forum, located at http://www65.zippyshare.com/v/77716919/file.html and downloaded the ZIP file.
I unzipped the file, copied all the extracted files into the Quotetracker directory, including overwriting existing files. However, when I start the program back up, it still shows 3.9.8 version (instead of 3.9.8a) and backfill still does not work. I have checked that the stocks.exe does get overwritten.
I have tried this process several times, but no luck. Just to make sure I was doing this right, I took a different computer on which I had never downloaded QT, installed the original version from quotetracker.com and then confirmed it was 3.9.8 version, then installed the patch and viola! it was the 3.9.8a version. But on my main computer, for the life of me I cannot get the same process to work.
Can you please confirm what the patched stocks.exe file size is? I have a stocks.exe file size of 8756KB with a timestamp of 7/18/11. This is exactly the file that I have been able to extract out of the zip file.
Thank you so much for your help!
