So, I used MC7 all weekend and have encountered no real issues so far.

Down loaded data from IB, changed chart types checking out Renko, etc.

Noticed they have removed that irritating code prompt thing, where you started typing, pressed enter and removed the word next to where you were typing.

So far so good.

Tonight I might get to test the Chart Trader...

Please start a new thread, this thread is about existing MC users upgrading to MC7. But briefly, it sounds like your workstation is locked down and your logged in user doesn't have admin rights. If you didn't do this yourself, contact your network administrator or the person who setup your machine.


Hi Mike

Should we start a new thread on cool things we find when after upgrading to MC7, or just continue on with this thread?

.... I'd say a new thread.


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 can't get it to let me download. It won't accept my UserID. I've tried both my Registration Code and Registration Name. Neither is accepted.

What did you use?

Thanks Vital, Mike, and diverdan. ( )

CL is expiring and I wanted to keep my Continuous contract running and opened another Workspace for the CL(U) contract. When I created a new chart in the workspace it came up "funny-looking". I went back to my continuous chart setups and discovered that the "Use as Default" boxes were no longer "selected".

I have been back and forth between the beta and MC6 over the last few weeks but haven't messed with creating new charts so don't know when this happened. The final release version may not have messed this up.

I'm an IB user. Have lots of continuous futures set up. MC has added an IB symbol directory, but it is not very comprehensive. You probably created your continuous futures symbols based on the eSignal roots, and they don't exist in the new IB symbol list (think EUR, GBP, JPY, etc. ). So things will not work. Scribble down the settings you are using in MC6. Load MC7. Open Quote Manager. Look for missing Symbol Roots in your continuous futures. Create them by adding them to the IB symbol dictionary under Tools. Then open MC.
