"Here are links to the latest version of GTR1 Helper:

PC version:
Mac version:

Version 4.0e
1. Two new menu items have been added to the File menu on the Screens (Main) View. They are Export Screen and Import Screen. Export allows you to export Universe, Screen Name and Radiscript to a tab delimited text file. Import takes a tab delimited text tile and brings the screen into GTR1 Helper. In cases where an imported screen is named the same as another screen in that universe, the name of the imported screen is prefaced with the date. Once imported that name may be edited.
2. Corrected the URL that gets created when using the Optimizer to calculate the Unit Value for each screen.
3. Corrected the SQL that supplies the URL to launch an optimized combination screen.
4. Added a new view called Correlation where two screens can be compared, on the basis of stock picks, to see how similar their stock picks are. Each successive run with different picks adds to the accuracy of the correlation coefficient.
5. Added ToolTips to most of the buttons. A ToolTip is a ‘Help’ message which is displayed whenever the mouse hovers above a button.
6. Fixed the ability of the program to find its database files when opening for the first time.

Whenever you launch a screen in my browser it should automatically scroll down to the “Run Backtest” button setting the buttons for Detailed Report and Portfolio Values (in most cases). The PC sometimes seems to drag its feet scrolling to the bottom. If you get impatient and want to scroll it down yourself with the scroll bar, go ahead and do it but just make you check the appropriate radio buttons at the bottom before running the backtest."

If you encounter any bugs, please notify the gentleman by the name of lohill (you can find one of his prior posts and send directly to Larry).
Version 4 is a significant enhancement of Version 3. Kudos to Larry for working diligently to enhance this wonderful tool.
