AAII offers weekly data updates to subscribers of Stock Investor Pro. These files are typically available by Sunday morning (Central Time). This issue of Stock Investor News walks you through the process of updating your SI Pro, as well as how to make use of automatic updates. There are two methods of updating the program: using the monthly CD or using the Program/Data Install option available at AAII.com.
To update Stock Investor Pro from AAII.com, first go to the Stock Investor Pro downloads page located at: www.aaii.com/stock-investor-pro/downloads. You may be prompted to log in using either your 10-digit AAII member number, with no spaces, or your personalized username and password. If you do not remember your member number, it can be found on your Stock Investor Pro or AAII Journal mailing label. If you have saved your Login Name and Password in the past, you will not be prompted to enter this information and will be taken directly to the Stock Investor Pro Downloads area.
From the downloads area, click on the Program/Data Install button to download the weekly data update file. The full installation file is named stockinvestorinstall.exe. You may Run or Save the file, but it is highly recommended that you save the file first, preferably to your desktop. Keep in mind that the Program/Data Install file is approximately 60MB in size and is intended for download by those using high-speed Internet connections such as cable modem, DSL, T1, or T3.
