Yhoo bundles don't seem to work with latest Windows update

Hi,

Yesterday I installed the latest Windows update, and now my yahoo bundles don't work.

the quantopian/quandl bundles work though. any thoughts as everything i do requires custom tickers from yhoo?

or is there a way to switch to google?

Thanks,
em

Hi Ed,

Thanks for posting about this. I'm currently running a Windows machine and can run

zipline ingest -b quantopian-quandl  

As well as ingest for a custom bundle, without any issues. Could you provide some more info? Feel free to use the issue template we have on GitHub for zipline.

If you wanted to make your own custom bundle that uses google finance data you could look at yahoo.py or quandl.py in zipline/data/bundles on GitHub and make your own custom bundle. Also you can reference the Writing a New Bundle section of the zipline docs.
