I recently purchased a new computer with Windows7 home premium installed. I tried to download a indicator from Big Mikes. Every thing looked fine but I could not get ninja to unzip the darn thing. Now on my old computer with XP I never had this problem. Contacted Ninja they said "we do not support Windows7, so no help from us..period, no work around, nadda. I was told to wait for for Ninja 7'. Who knows when/if that will be released. In the mean time MSFT ends support for XP. Any suggestions as to how to install those indicators would be most appreciated.
P.S. I use a third party Autotrader and this works just fine.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for responding to my post. I get no error message. Ninja simply will not open the zip. files. I.E... Control Center... Utilities...Import NinjaScript...(Yes)...-Import NinjaScript Archive File- appears and a list of zip. files is on this window. I then highlight a Compressed (zipped) folder for the indicator. Click open. A new screen opens and says "no items match your search".

You've tried it on more than one indicator?

I've never heard of that error before, I am not sure if the indicator you are trying to attach is corrupt or what. Maybe attach it here.

On second thought, I really don't think that is a NinjaTrader error. I think you are hitting the wrong button or something on the dialog box. Can you post a screen shot of the error message please ("no items match your search").

I do not think it is a corrupted indicator as I have attempted to download several indicators and have incountered the same problem. I am following the same steps I used on the old computer, I think. I just cannot open the zip file. How do you do it?

I am on Windows 7 and everything works perfectly ..... never had this problem ...

I am sure it is related to your own machine ....

As a turnaround you can open the zip file and copy paste the indicators in the documents NT/bin/custom/Indicators folder.....

I have done as you suggested on two indicators with great results. Previously I (old computer/XP) I did not copy and past to the Indicator file and all loaded just fine..this copy/paste process will be s.o.p. henceforth. Once again thank you for your patience/assistance. Mike

Gabga100,

I just started using Windows 7 and am having the same problem.

The Ninja Import box (6.5) doesn't recognize the zipped file. If you click on the zip file it says "no items match your search"??? These are the same zip files that NT 6.5 recognized on XP.

The "open with" information says Windows Explorer. I'm not 100% sure it's a Windows 7 issue, as it could also be IE 8 trying to open zip files. Windows 7 comes with IE 8 and that may be the culprit.

It is a pain when trying to move over my custom indicators or use someone's contribution.

Any ideas on fixing this would be appreciated.

Thanks
