This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Converting indicator from Windows7 32 to 64

This was posted fro MT4. Just bought new laptop windows7 64 bit. When I copied my indicators from older laptop windows7 32 bit, one of the indicators does not display arrows and does not work. Beside the idea of downgrading my laptop to 32bit which is a major task, can someone advise if they can modify the indicator to work on 64bit? Thanks much

The build on both laptops is 388 for MT4.

If I understand correctly, the difference is from the RemoteSoft obfuscation software. If you run the NinjaTrader 32-bit app (even on a 64-bit OS) then the 32-bit DLL from your protected indicator should work fine. You would only run into problems if you run the 64-bit NT app, and try to use the 32-bit DLL from the protected indicator.

You should contact your vendor to get a free or nominal charge new DLL package which is compatible with 64-bit NinjaTrader.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I think the problem is with MT4, not NT .
