NT7b12 and strategies (not working)

I just installed NT7b12. I have unzipped a strategy that is known to work on NT7 but no profit or loss lines appear when I run the strat. Am I missing something?

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.

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

Is it one I posted? I've been adding an "Allow Backtest" bool to all my strats which basically enables "if (Historical) return;" I use the Output window a lot so I need that bool and the default is "false." Set it to "true" in the Stratgey Editor dialog.

No the strat I tried that should work is Hurley_v101 posted by Big Mike who said it work for NT6.5 and NT7. I tried a 5 min chart.

Thanks,

Hi MXASJ - I tried your latest Kleinman_NT7b12 as well and that didn't sow up any entries and exits either. I switched Enabled to true and can then see the fast and slow MA lines but no historical trades.

Thanks
Nano

Pretty simple really - needed to have Enabled = true. I now include this as a line in the code, which you can do in NT7 - but cannot include it in NT6.5.

LOL yup I wasted a few minutes at first on that one too. I don't understand the logic of adding a strategy to a chart and it not being turned on at that point. I can understand disabling it without removing it, but can't understand it not being enabled when you first add it.
