OK - it's probably worth an update.

On my setup, Ninja & windows 8 are not getting along very well.

When I start Ninja, it takes several minutes to start up during which time it has one of my processors hogged.

Of course, this could be down to my code which is also running on top of Ninja so I need to investigate that.

Anyone else got this?

Cheers

Pete

Are you using any third party indicators that require activation based on either the machine id or a the provider server?

I have customers on Windows 8 going via DLLs secured with NinjaTraders vendor licensing. That all seems fine.

I am running NT on Windows 8 and everything seems to be working fine. It is on my backtesting machine. I don't trade live on this particular machine so I can't comment to that aspect but as far as backtesting etc everything is working. All my strategies imported fine and load with no issues. I actually find things including NT load faster on windows 8.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

I also are running on Win 8 Pro for backtesting - no issues at all with NT on Win 8. I also concur that it runs faster than Win 7 (not amazingly faster, but certainly quicker for me).

I hate windows 8

The day before black Friday I picked up a new dell Inspirion laptop at Best Buy because they have a 30 day money back on that item . The new Dell has 8 gigs of ram which is double the ram I have in my old Inspirion and it also has a quad core and my old has just a double core . My old dell has always has a fresh copy of windows 7 that I install mysell because I format my hard drive about every 5-7 months to keep it running fast as possible.
Anyway after 5 days of using my new Dell and after removing all the bloatware I could find it actually has at least double the lag to open and close programs as my old Dell has. The next test for me was to run some walk forward optimizing in Ninjatrader, I do think it ran it a tiny bit faster although on a few of the more complex strategies It would still freeze my computer and I would have to do the old cont/alt/del method to close down Ninjatrader.
I decided well I gave windows 8 five days to wow me but it made me hate it so now its time to put a clean non OEM copy of Windows 7 in this new laptop and see if it the lag disappears. Found out you cant format your hardrive and install 7 once windows 8 has been installed there due to the new interface in it. Since I cant re-format with 7 and windows 8 is such a recource hog I will be returning my new Dell.

I looked all over the web for some trick to install 7 to replace 8 if anyone has done it let me know
Thanks

If it makes you feel better my other old computers (4) running WindowsXP outperform my newer i7 monster computer hands down. Seems like Windows gets worse with every new revision.

I am seriously thinking about buying an Apple desktop, although everything I have is MS material.

Cheers!

Do you see any benefit to windows 8 over windows 7?
