To anyone who is running both NT6.5 & NT7: How do you handle data since most providers will not allow two simultaneous connections, even if from the same machine? Is it possible to bridge data feeds between two NT installations?

Zen Fire allows two connections, just email your broker and tell them you need your login to handle 2 simultaneous connections.

IQFeed works because it's a separate client, each instance of NT calls the client (as long as they are on the same machine).

Can't comment on others.

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.
6)

I use a demo GAIN account connection setup on each VM. Obviously it is only forex pairs, but does give a working solution. I havent tried it yet, but I do plan to record data on the host system and share the file to each VM for analysis (not trading from a VM)

I don't know what's wrong with your vendor license (for me the problem is not caused by the VM, and external license server is unable to know if it's a VM or a physical machine asking for a license), but if you want to have NT 6.5 and NT 7 running on the same machine, you just have to rename one of the .exe (rename the NT 7 NinjaTrader.exe to NinjaTrader-7.exe for example).

Have you done this ok with NT7b19 ?? I seem to have issues with trying it on my trading machine (license), not to mention you cant skin NT to a different colour to not get confused between versions when they are running at once

Yes, it works with b19 too. But only my NT6.5 have the regular license, my NT7 have a demo license number (as it is only for sim or coding).
You are right about the skins, it can be confusing, some discipline needed here (for me it's NT7 always on the same screens, NT6.5 always on the others).

I have tried that ... but I cant resist the urge to use all my screen when I am working on a project and eventually I get the 'wuzzyz' wondering what is what.

Are the NT versions used by the brokers 'branded' with their company name (I am thinking like you can brand Internet Explorer ... maybe a registry tweak to display a more useful heading than 'Control Centre' to help out those among us that 'somewhereis' what we are looking for ...

update: I can rename to NT6.5.exe and run it at same time at NT7b20, but I can not successfully rename NT7 and run it at same time as NT6.5. This is in Win7 Enterprise x64, running 32bit NT6.5 & 32bit NT7b20. RtClick the newly made NT6.5.exe desktop shortcut as ADMINISTRATOR may be a prerequisite

I doing my backtesting and strategy development in a VM Workstation. Till now there aren't any issues with licensing, because the third-party vendor has a own "one session" at a time license server. But now i am afraid to get the next tool, because it is bounded to my machine id. The problem is, that my VM properties like CPU/RAM count 32/64bit, count of Harddisk can vary often, to adapt to my current requirements.

So can anybody tell me WHAT components affect the ninjatrader machine id? I don't want to bother the vendor every time when i enlarge my associated VM RAM and so on.
