I'm not sure weather you just want to run the screen, backtest or both.
The simplest way to do both if you have a valid subscription to SI Pro are:

Most flexible method which allows both backtesting and screening.
1. Download and install Larry Hill's GTR1 Helper from:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/5znrgw63mvnl83y/GTR1%20Helper%204....
2. Install your current SIP program with current data.
3. a.Run GTR1 Helper. b.Select SI Pro Screens, c.From dropdown menue select PIH_Naked
and double click on it, d.Select Launch Type "Basic Format",e.Select Launch URL,
This will open up the gtr1.net with the standard PIH_Naked screen all set up.
At this point you can backtest the screen and see the results and you can modify parameters
to see it any changes help.
But you do not have access to the stocks selected by the screen until you verify you are a current
license holder of SI Pro. To verify you have a valid SIP licence you need to enter a password which
is the MD5 hash code of your SIP downloaded data file. Insert that into the password box and
you are now able to find out which stocks currently pass the screen.

For screening only:
Download Radiscript, an Excel macro program by radish that will run your screens directly from
selected data fields you export from your SIP data using the SIP program. I don't have the current
location where Radiscript resides but you can search for it using DataHelper.
http://www.datahelper.com/mi/search.phtml

For screening only (backtesting is possible but requires you building a database which is very difficult)
download runradis-1,2b from https://sourceforge.net/projects/runradis/files/
This is the program was written by Jim Hahn in 2011. It is used to make the listings each week. It
includes documentation on
how you have to run programs.

All of these methods are better than using the SIP program itself.
