NOTE: 64-bit version of AmiQuote now requires Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 runtime. You may need to download the runtime separately and install it, if you are installing AmiQuote stand-alone (without AmiBroker 6.30 64-bit or higher already installed). If you already have AmiBroker 6.30 64-bit you don't need to do anything.

CHANGES FOR VERSION 4.05 (as compared to version 4.02)

  1. fixed problem with changed Yahoo cookies that occured on March 10, 2020
  2. implemented changes to Yahoo Fundamental Extra that addresses completely new layout of Statistics page on Yahoo Finance.
  3. implemented checks for Yahoo Fundamental Extra throthling (they added them recently). When Yahoo rejects too many/too frequent requests for Fundamental data then "Try later (in 1 minute)" message is displayed and download stops. It can be resumed by pressing Green arrow (Download) button.

Full documentation on new features is included in the AmiQuote Read Me.

Sure everyone appreciates the quick fix. I’ve only been around for a few years but I can only imagine how many hours you’ve put into amiquote/yahoo support. Seems like once a year they like to break something for you.

When trying to run the 4.05 version I get an "program can't start because mfc140.dll is missing" error. Logging in to my comupter as admin, I cannot install/save the mfc140.dll file. Suggestions

If you read what is written on the download page: http://www.amibroker.com/download.html you would already know the solution:

64-bit version of AmiQuote now requires Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 runtime. You need to download it separately and install if you are installing AmiQuote stand-alone (without AmiBroker 6.30 or higher already installed)

I downloaded and install 4.05 last night. I am not real sure what is happening. If I update using Tiingo Historical, everything runs just fine without any problems. If I try Yahoo Fundamental, after updating around 110-130 tickers, Amiquote just shuts down and disappears form the screen. This has happened each time I have tried, 4-5 times. I will see if I can figure out any more specific information that might help narrow down what could be happening but I thought I would post in case anyone else is having any issues.

Thank you. That fixed the issue...!

We need exact reproducible steps. Try max. simultaneous downloads = 1 and check which exact symbol you have problems with. Precision is the key. Also check if you historical_log.txt file is created and send the content to support BY EMAIL.

Additional info as you requested sent by email....

After investigation it turns out that 64-bit version only of AmiQuote 4.05 may exit if you download data from Yahoo Fundamental Extra and Yahoo denies request. The problem does NOT occur in 32-bit version. The reason of problem is non-standard behavior of 64-bit version of Microsoft C runtime library. 32-bit version works fine. The Microsoft library error needs specific workaround and will arrive in next version.
