Smart Charts Copier
Current Version: 188.8.131.52
Released: 6th September 2011
What is it?
The problem with Smart Charts is that MetaStock™ stores them "inside" a data history. If a fresh version of the history is installed, the pre-existing Smart Charts are lost. The Smart Charts Copier is a tool to assist clients in retaining their MetaStock™ Smart Charts after installing a replacement history.
If you re-install a history (without first deleting or un-installing the existing history) the history installer will rename the existing history folder to preserve a copy of it as a backup. Similarly, if you upgrade from a "trial" history to a "full" history.
If you re-install the ASX history, the installer will rename the existing "ASX" folder to "ASX(Previous Installation)" before installing a fresh "ASX" folder.
If you re-install the Futures history, the installer will rename the existing "Futures" folder to "Futures(Previous Installation)" before installing a fresh "Futures" folder.
The back-up history folder contains the pre-existing Smart Charts. These Smart Charts can then be transferred to the new history folder using the Smart Charts Copier.
