Primary download site: FCharts Full Install (3.4 mb)
On Windows 7 or later, you must right-click the installer and choose 'Run as Administrator'
1) Download the installation file. Locate the file and run your normal anti-virus scan on it. Once you're happy it's free of viruses, run the installation file. You should see something like this:
Click Yes to proceed or No to cancel.
Instead of the above, Windows may throw up a warning similar to the one below:
At this point you either trust me (and my company, Spacejock Software) and click 'Yes', or you click 'No' and delete the installer. That's up to you - just bear in mind I set up this website over twenty years ago, and if I was offering dodgy software someone would have closed it down by now, wouldn't they? I'm also an author with almost thirty novels in print, and my reputation matters to me!
Follow the prompts to set up the software, and once setup is complete FCharts will appear in your Start menu under the heading 'Spacejock Software'
Sample Database (9 mb)
(FCharts 1.x only)
This file contains 3 years of data for roughly 2500 tickers. Download and run to install. Please be aware that it will replace any existing price data
. In other words, don't install this sample data if you already have FCharts running with your own database.
This comprehensive manual was assembled by Neil McPhee, and consists of masses of information culled from postings to the FCPro mailing list in addition to a great deal of original material. A huge effort.
