Windows 8 and NinjaTrader

Windows 8 RTM is out in the wild.

Anyone running NinjaTrader on it yet and can report back?

Any issues? Any adjustments needed?

In particular, I'd like to hear from users running multiple monitors. Can the metro interface be disabled entirely and give us a traditional desktop and start menu?

Mike

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Not yet. It is not out in the wild either - currently it is a faked setup ISO (merged) - noone knows whether it is fully the correct one.

But it is only a couple of more days. I already got access to my activation keys for Windows 8 and Server 2012, both MAK (Multi Activation) and KMS (Key Management Server). I expect the ISO files to show up on monday for download (legally - I have access to the MS repositories due to SPLA status).

cool, let us know what you find out.. we should have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the previews that were released.. i think i posted about it awhile ago when the first one was out but im not sure.. has anyone had any problems with NT7 on the win8 previews?

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

You can convert between traditional desktop and metro using small utilities like w8devpre smt.

For multiple monitor users, one big change is that now we have taskbar on each of our monitors, not just the main one.

no show stoppers here so far. one thing is that title bar text is center aligned, so some things like SuperDOM title can be unreadable, but that is pretty minor

I upgraded my Windows 7 (Ultimate) to Windows 8 Pro (RTM) today and I noticed that none of my third party (Purchased) indicators work. I have not tried any multi monitor testing.
The stock indicators and those that were downloaded from NT Forum work fine. So far it appears to be only the indicators that requires activation from third party vendors.

The following was the official response that I just received from NT Support:

Hello,



Thank you for your note.



Windows 8 is not supported at this time. NinjaTrader will install, but various 3rd party features such as certain brokerage technologies and the 3rd party indicator DLL protection methods are not supported at this time.


We can expect support for this closer to the final release of Windows 8.



Please let me know if you have additional questions.

Sincerely,
Matthew

Interesting. Windows 8 is officially released for quite some time now - I downloaded my LEGAL copy from the MS licensing servers more than a week ago. Everyone with a developer account (MSDN) got it even earlier than me (I got it on the 16th). This weekend I was shutting down my bridgehead server in Chicago in order to reinstall the hypervisor with the RTM code of - Windows Server 2012. Pretty much the only ones NOT having access to Windows 8 these days are people that need to get it in a shop, all the others got it for quite some time.

Well Looks like anyone using Ninja has to wait quite some time now - until maybe Ninja 8 - for them to support Windows 8? I hate to say, this is quite disappointing. I was looking forward to upgrade my whole infrastructure including the trading machines.

this is tarded... ^^^^^^ how much do you really want them to do? 99.9% of their user base wont use win8 till its released(oct 26th) which they will prolly make good on.. im guessing the majority of users after that still wont be using it by the 1st of the year.. how much do you really expect them to do? if you read around there really isnt any problems with NT on win8 right now anyways..
