How to set up VantagePoint to have CSI as your data vendor?

Step 1

Download UA from our website
Scroll down to “Unfair Advantage for VantagePoint Users”

Click on the “Unfair Advantage Package for Vantage Point Users” EXE (which is circled in the image).

Step 2

  • Download the file. It is a very big file so it will take a while.
  • When finished downloading, double click on the file to install the Unfair Advantage Program.
  • When installing you will have a chance to select a Vantage Point Portfolio.
  • Most likely you are using VP 8.4, not sure if that one is on the list yet but if it is not don’t worry because you can still get it from within the Unfair Advantage program (directions follow).
  • During the installation DO NOT change any settings, just leave the default settings. Click NEXT, NEXT, … INSTALL.
  • At the end of installation you will be prompted to enter your 3 letter user ID and 5 digit # which will come in a separate e-mail from our billing department.
  • From there just follow the prompts.
If there was not a choice of an 8.4 VP portfolio:
  • Open the Unfair Advantage program
  • Choose Portfolio
  • Download Portfolio
  • Vantage Point 8.4
