Can NinjaTrader data be stored other than \My Documents\NinjaTrader 6.5

I am trying to move the data off from the "\My Documents\Ninjatrader 6.5" directory to a different location.

Is there any way to switch the data directory during Ninjatrader start up?

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers, tc

Moved from Programmers Paradise to Trading Platforms.

I don't know the answer for moving JUST ninja data, sorry. But, you should be able to move your entire My Documents folder pretty easily, and then anything that uses the windows variable to locate where to store files would move along with it.

Which operating system do you have?

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.

I am using Windows XP. I don't want to move the whole "My Documents".

The reason I am asking this question is because there is a conflict between 2 DLLs in my Ninjatrader custom indicator directory. They have no problem if they are used separately but just can't co-exist.

One way I can get around is to have 2 different Ninja directories setup in "My Document" and only put each DLL into their own corresponding place. This will only work if I can startup NT6.5 and pointing to the corresponding directory.

I did try to install 2 different NT sessions in Program Files. When I try to install NJ the second time, it always recognize the first installion.

Any idea on how to get around?

Well that is completely different.

Just create two batch files, one icon calls one batch file, the other icon calls the other, and rename the conflicting DLL to something like conflicting.DLL.temp, so it is not loaded on startup.
