QuanTek Econometrics Software

Download QuanTek here!

You may download the latest QuanTek version here and run it on your Windows computer. 

Demonstration version: The demo version is fully functional, except for the ability to parse data into data files, and becomes the fully functional version once activated with an Authorization Key. To try out the demo version of QuanTek, after downloading and installing the program, upon startup you will be greeted by an Enter Pass Code dialog box, where you can enter your Pass Code (if you have one). If QuanTek has not yet been authorized, click the Authorize button which takes you to the Authorization Key dialog, where you can enter your Authorization Key (license). If you do not have a license, just click Close in this dialog and you can try out QuanTek without a license. You can try out QuanTek without a license using the files in the Sample Files folder included with the installation. To create new data files using securities data from Yahoo (or another database), you need to purchase a license from Omicron Research Institute.

System Requirements: QuanTek is designed to run on Windows 7 or higher. QuanTek also requires .NET 4.0 to be installed. The development computer is running 8.0 GB of RAM on an i7 processor, so this can be taken as a minimum recommended system. To verify that QuanTek runs correctly on your system, you can download and run the demo program.

Screen Requirements: The QuanTek program was designed for a minimum screen resolution of 1280 by 1024 pixels. It is recommended that this resolution or higher be used to run the program, especially in the vertical direction, otherwise the Dialog Bar will be cut off, and there won't be enough room to display the graphs.

Note: The Yahoo version of QuanTek uses free Yahoo data and also doubles as a Yahoo data downloader. You can download Yahoo daily data without a license (freebee) and save it to a *.csv file, to test the data download, but to parse the data into data files and use it in the program you need the license. (Note that since Yahoo has discontinued its historical data download, you need to download historical data -- 8 years worth -- from the Yahoo web site itself and then parse the data into data files within QuanTek. But as of now the daily data update from Yahoo still works.)

Here is the installation file for QuanTek 3.8a. This file has a valid security certificate issed by Digicert. If your anti-virus software displays a dialog box saying the file is "not commonly downloaded", please click More Options->Run anyway... to download and install QuanTek 3.8a.

QuanTek 3.8 Installation: This version of QuanTek comes in an InstallShield installation file. Just download and save the installation file, then double-click on the installation file to run the installation. Or you can run the installation file directly from the web site. After installation, please remember to keep all the files together in the same folder -- otherwise it will not work properly. (In particular, the QuanTek_38.chm Help file must be in the same folder with the QuanTek_38.exe executable file.)
