Bad Custom Indicator on PC

When trying to import a zipped indicator file I get and error saying I have an error in a custom indicator that has to be fixed before I can import a indicator.
How do I find the indicator that is the problem?

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.

go to tools > edit ninjascript > indicator. open any indicator and press f5. then on the bottom left it should show you the file (indicator) with errors.

I am getting this same error.

I have no custom indicators loaded in NT.

Where on my computer do I look for these indicators so I can delete them?

Does this mean I can't have a non-compiled indicator anywhere on my computer?

Thank you,

A custom indicator could either be an open source code indicator that resides in the same folder as your system indicators or could be a compiled .dll in your Custom folder. Follow the instructions in post #4 to find what indicator has the errors.

Thank you,


(1) First identifiy the offending indicators as per post # 4
(2) If the identified trouble maker is an indicator delete it via Tools -> Edit NinjaScript -> Indicator
(3) If the trouble maker is an assembly (compiled indicator) you will need to

(a) if it can be done, remove the offending NinjaScript assembly via File -> Utilities -> Remove NinjaScript Assembly

(b) only if (a) does not work:

-> close NinjaTrader
-> remove the files of the offending assembly within the folder My Documents -> NinjaTrader 7 -> bin -> Custom
(to be precise: do not remove any folder, do not remove the files starting with "NinjaTrader", do not remove thefile AssemblyInfo.cs, do not remove the files relating to other assemblies)
-> restart NinjaTrader and remove the references to the assembly

To remove the references go to Tools -> Edit NinjaScript -> Indicator, open any indicator, right-click somewhere on that indicator and select "References", then delete the reference to the offensive assembly.

Then check again, whether the problem was solved.
