Note to present clients who are upgrading from an older version of Investment Analyst

Due to changes that were made in this version of Investment Analyst, it was necessary to change the default Folder location where Analyst data files are saved.  In earlier versions of Analyst, these files were saved, by default, to "C:\Program Files\AnalystICC" or "C:\Program Files\Financial Masterplan\Investment Analyst".  Although we made every effort to keep your present Folder location for saving data files, this was not possible in all cases.  To view or change the new setting for Default Folder for Analyst data files, click on the Defaults tab.

 

To locate all of your saved Analyst data files, click on Start, then Search, then All Files and Folders.  Type "*.dta" in the Search Box.  The location of all of the Analyst data files that you have saved should be displayed.  If you have difficulty locating data files that you have previously saved, please call us and we will be happy to assist you in locating these files.
