New version 2.1.3

It seems the installer was missing a required DLL. Hopefully, all issues solved.



  1. I can’t get the downloaded zip file to extract.
    I downloaded the file and clicked Open With Internet Explorer. It placed the file in Users\Ann\Local\Temp
    Get error - Windows protected your PC – Clicked RUN ANYWAY
    Get error – Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions – what is weird is that the file in the error message has an extra Temp2 in the file name \Temp\Temp2_setupEZBacktest 1_1_3.Zip\SetupEzBacktest 2_1_3.exe the TEMP2 is not on the file.
    I tried downloading clicking Save as into another directory, the same one where I keep PORTFOLIOS. When I click on it I get the same Windows is protecting your computer – clicked RUN ANYWAY – get the Windows cannot access the path specified and the file name points to a totally different directory - Users\Ann\Local\Temp\Temp3_setupezBactest 1_1_3.zip\setupEzBacktest 2_1_3.exe. This is NOT the location of where I saved the file.
    Any ideas on how I can get the zip file to extract and load the new software. Do I need to buy Winzip to be able to unzip the download?

    1. Yes, I posted a blog post about this problem: http://ezbacktest.blogspot.com/2017/05/bug-reported-is-being-worked-on-few.html

    2. To be clear: don't buy winzip, it won't help, the issue is the anti-virus+windows protection. Follow the instructions in the blog.
      And by the way, the installer EXE is zipped to allow it to be uploaded/downloaded to the FTP

    3. Info on Norton quarantine worked. New software is installed. Thanks.

  2. No problems, working now! Thanks
