Toolkit 5.1.3 Update Released

We've just released an update to Investor's Toolkit 5 -- version 5.1.3. Users of Toolkit 5 will be prompted to update when they next open the program, and should just follow the instructions on the screen to auto-update the software. Or you can choose Help > Check for Updates from the Toolkit menu. If necessary, disable or adjust your firewall to allow Toolkit to connect to the update server.

This release includes fixes to the calculations in the Challenger function and restores the "import several datafiles at once" feature, as well as a fix to the auto-updater function that should help prevent some run-time errors.

NOTE: After updating or installing Toolkit using the auto-updater, if you do receive "Runtime Error 429" or "Runtime Error 430" and your program doesn't open, please follow these instructions to download a manual patch file:

  1. Reboot your computer. (You MUST reboot your computer.)
  2. Visit and scroll down to the "Patches & Updates" section to the link that says "Toolkit 5 Update Patch."
  3. Right-click on the link to download this file and save it to your computer Desktop.
  4. Minimize your web browser, and execute (run) the ToolkitUpdate.exe file from your computer Desktop.
  5. The patch will run and update your Toolkit 5 to version 5.1.3.
  6. You may now delete the ToolkitUpdate.exe file from your Desktop.

Once installed, either via the auto-updater or through the manual patch, this update will make sure that future updates go smoothly without causing run-time errors or the program to not open as you may have experienced in the past.

If you have any questions or problems, please contact ICLUBcentral Technical Support.
