Does StrataSearch support realtime processing?
Sorry, but no. StrataSearch currently supports end-of-day prices only. We have many great plans for the future of StrataSearch, of which realtime processing is just one. But we're looking forward to adding realtime support at some point in the future.

What operating systems are supported?
StrataSearch is built for Microsoft Windows operating systems only, and can be used on Windows 2000 or higher. This includes all Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 versions. Although there is not currently a 64-bit version of StrataSearch, the existing 32-bit version has been fully tested and is supported for use on 64-bit operating systems.

What are the machine requirements?
Due to the heavy demands StrataSearch places on a computer, a faster operating system is always a benefit. Multiple-cores in particular can greatly increase the processing speed. However, for standard processing, 1GB of RAM is recommended as well as 1GB of available disk space. 1024 x 768 screen resolution is also required.

Does StrataSearch support multiple processors?
Yes. StrataSearch can take advantage of as many processors as your computer has available, and has throttling capabilities so you can slow StrataSearch down if needed. The benefit of multiple processors is dependant on the type of system being evaluated, with larger sectors receiving the greatest performance benefits.

Can you extend my trial period another week?
Sorry, but no. The StrataSearch Version 4.5 Subscription currently contains a free 30-day period, and it cannot be reset or extended.

Can I run StrataSearch on both my desktop and laptop?
Yes, the StrataSearch Subscription allows you to run StrataSearch on 2 computers. You may even run them simultaneously if you wish.

Can I transfer my license after buying a new computer?
Yes. To transfer your license, you should first download and install StrataSearch on your new computer. Then send us the Machine ID from your new computer and we'll be happy to transfer your license. Please let us know the Machine ID you will no longer be using.
