Install NT7 side by side with NT6.5?

It appears many are using NT7. Is it possible to have both versions installed and run at the same time or separately? Thanks!

Yes!

Go to your Program Files\NinjaTrader 6.5\bin directory, and rename NinjaTrader.exe to NinjaTrader65.exe.

Then change your desktop icon and/or quick launch icon to point to the new target, or create a new shortcut by right-clicking on NinjaTrader65.exe and hit create shortcut, then drag that shortcut to your desktop and/or your quick launch bar.

Now you can run NT6.5 and NT7 simultaneously. Keep in mind, if you use Zen Fire, you can only connect once by default. You'll have to email your broker and ask them to enable two simultaneous connections.

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)

There has been an earlier post in this forum to do it the other way (i. e. renaming NinjaTrader7.exe instead of NinjaTrader.exe); and that's what I've been using for some time now. So, I need to start the NT7 first before I launch NT6.5.
