So, I installed Mathematica 10 the other day alongside 9 and let it remove Mathematica 8. While it was installing, I briefly saw a message about Mathematica 9 Extras being removed. At the time, I didn't think much about it as I assumed that 9 would still continue to be able to use the Extras from 10.
I'm not sure if FinancialData is one of the Extras, or not, but it is no longer working in 9. If I try something simple like:
I just get $Failed. Of course, that works just fine in 10. Is there any way to recover this functionality in 9 while still keeping 10 installed?
Removing the backslashes did the job. Thank you very much!
Thank you for replying, but that didn't work. Here is what I get:
In:= PacletUninstall /@ PacletFind["\*FinancialData\*"]
What if I reinstall Mathematica 9? Or, would that possibly cause problems with 10?
Can you try it without the backslashes () before the asterixes (*)? This was an issue with my post editing. (It may still not work, but I want to make sure this has been tried).
The Extras have nothing to do with FinancialData. (The Extras installs the CDF browser plugin)
It is more likely that your FinancialData paclet somehow became incorrect.
Try the following:
PacletUninstall /@ PacletFind["*FinancialData*"]
Let me know if that does not solve your problem.
