I've got the CQG license set up and the new Name and Password from AMP, but when I follow their instructions and go to the list of providers, there's no CQG in the provider drop down window. I've uninstalled NT7 and reinstalled it several times (using both 1000.2 and 1000.3 beta) and still no CQG. I'm using the following procedure:
III. Convert/Adjust your current live connection in NinjaTrader to CQG.
In order to set this up you will need your new CQG user ID and password.
1) Start NinjaTrader
2) From within the Control Center window, select Tools-->Account Connections...
3) In the Account Connection Set Up window, press Add...
4) Click on Next, name the connection AMP Live and select CQG as the Provider
5) Backup data feed connection: "<None>"
6) Select "Enabled" for historical data
7) Enter the user name/password check "include Index Data"
8) Complete the wizard
9) From the Control Panel, select File->Connect->AMP Live and give it a few seconds to connect. You will see a green box in the lower left corner of the control panel that says "Connected - CQG."
I've contacted AMP and Ninjatrader for help, which they're happy to provide, but AMP wants to have me install an app so they can do a remote connection to view what's going on on my computer. I'd rather not have them get any access to my computer.
Just a guess, but were you supposed to get a new license key? The license key is likely what controls what account options are available in the drop down.

Once received by the trade desk, they will process the conversion and an email will be sent with
the new CQG user name and password.
I sent them my existing Ninjatrader Live/SIM trade license key and received this message:
Your license key has been converted to CQG. Please restart NinjaTrader for it to take effect.
Please let us know if you have any questions.

So it appeared to me that Ninjatrader converted my existing key.
I must admit I've found the AMP Trading/Dorman/AMP Clearing/Ninjatrader/Zenfire/CQG relationships a little confusing at times given my prior experience with E-Trade and other discount stock brokers where it was simply signup, fund the account and trade. There's been much to learn. As the AMP..... relationships have changed several times during the past year, it sometimes hasn't been entirely clear which organization should handling my questions.
ask ninja for sim amp cqg key then it will let you see cqg selection. You still need a live account key to receive real time market breadth data, in another word amp only activate this feature for your live key.

Found the problem. Hate to admit it, but I was trying to enter the key in the File\Utilities\Vendor licensing area instead of the Help/License Key area. My bad. Helps to enter the info in the correct area.
