Please help with Ninjascript error.

I have had errors in the past and have been able to fix after compiling. This error is more tenacious. I think the .dll's are my prob and I don't want to start deleting anything without knowlege.

I am posting a screenshot of my errors. TEMA seems to be the offender. This indicator cant be deleted because it's original Ninja. Also, no @TEMA is there either.

Any suggestions.

delete ncatSpreadScapler and let ncat people know that you can't compile it.

Well, that's another unusual thing. This indicator is active if I load it however it was not in the edit ninjsrip> Indicators> ncat list with all the other ncat indicators. Looked several times. Any thoughts.

Another piece of info. There were about 6 other error/conflicts. Deleted those indicators and they resolved. All this happened when I downloaded a volatility extreme indicator from here. When I did there was a message that said there were newer components already on my system. I should have passed but I pushed it through anyway thinking it would work. dang!

BTW, appreciate your extremely fast reply...

go directly to indicator folder delete the most recent added indicator and compile any indicator to see if error persist. repeat until no more error.

I went through a few of the recently installed indicators as you said. That didn't work. So I did a search for the culprit indicator (spread scalper) to execute your first suggestion...since it was not visiable in indicators folder. That worked and there were multiple files and .dlls and such. Deleted them. Bam...that worked...partially. Cleared out the error I had before but created a new one.

new error states: Metadata File C:Users...NinjaTrader7\bin\Custom\ncatSpreadScalper.dll' could not be found

when i search my c drive for ncatSpreadScalper this name pulls up in the following type of files:

Log files. 11 of them.
trace files. 11 of them...these all have a corresponding number to the log files.

Also, several of my "template" code pages that contained this indicator an one "config" page turned up. My "template" pages and "config" are all code on an Internet Explorer Page. I found the line items within the code that referrences this indicator. My best guess would be to surgically remove these line items from code...how do you properly do that. And I don't want to start hacking something up without guidance.

Fix metadata missing .dll ninjascript error

Googled this problem and fixed missing .dll issue. (however have original error appearing).

I fixed missing .dll issue by:
1. Perform a normal compile.
2. Right click in the code field (above the error field)
3. Select "References"
4. Select the offending .dll and delete it.
5. Restart NT.

If this is correlated to an indicator that you want I would suggest a reinstall, however, I have not tested this. I just wanted the indicator gone.

Similar problem to original now showing up again.

It looks like a stock indicator is showing up in several locations. If I go to delete the indicator with the error it states that there are shared files and it cannot delete the indicator.

This occurred when I downloaded volatility indicator from here... not the one listed in the error. However, this problem is my fault. When I downloaded it I got a message stating that "newer versions of some of the components are already on this PC"..or something like that. It asked me if I wanted to proceed so I pushed the indicator through...that's where I went wrong.

To fix Ninjatrader ninjascript indicator error

When all else fails...

These are instructions from NT. This worked for me. however use your own discretion here.
Please repair install with the steps provided below. With this procedure you will not lose any Workspaces, Charts, custom items etc. You will need to copy your license key from Control Center > Help > License Key...

Close all running applications.
Make sure NinjaTrader is closed from the Windows Task Manager:
Press CTRL + ALT + DEL on your keyboard > Start Task Manager...Make sure NT is not running.
Then from the Start menu select --> Control Panel --> Add and Remove Programs or Programs and Features
From Add and Remove Programs select NinjaTrader 7 and click Remove or Uninstall.
Restart your PC.
After NinjaTrader is uninstalled, navigate to the following folders and delete any "NinjaTrader 7" folders located here if any:
C:\Program Files (x86)\
or
C:\Program Files\
Once these steps are completed, download and install NinjaTrader 7.0.1000.31 from the link below:
NinjaTrader Direct Download
(This is where you will need to input your license key to download)
