I'm running NT7 Beta 15 and was going to load Beta 16 but wanted to hear if there was any real reason not to load 16.

Please advise.
Thanks,
Todd

Beta 16 is way better than 15 IMHO.

I am pushing NT7 to the limit and it is not breaking. https://futures.io/platforms-indicators/3565-anyone-have-any-hints-optimizing-c-code-5.html#post42424

Plus with all the activity by the rest of the contributors to the above referenced thread as to optimizing code for 7 and the NT Volume Ladder thread

There is no reason not to switch and load some of Zondor's and Richard's, etc. indicators optimized for NT7.

Zondor just informed me that he believes further progress is possible in indicator optimization of ones he has not reworked, but a lot of work has been posted and documented on the forum in the last week.

So, NT7B16 is the way to go. Until 17, 18, 19, 20, etc come out.

There is a new 16 out now, which should address some of the issues with the one from a week ago. I havn't tried yet.

Just to be clear I am running the newest 16 on 2 computers, only one minor problem with the backup utility, which is probably due to my cutting corners.

Will reinstall the newest 16 at the close of the market today as I did not do a true clean install on one machine and did on the other.

The 1st one had the old 16 and I just uninstalled and then reinstalled. On the second, without ever seeing 16, moved all indicators to a backup folded, removed everything NT on the system defragged, ran CC Cleaner, and then moved the indys back. No problems.

Expect the same result later on the 1st: No problems. But if anything happens will post here.

Just reinstalled NT7B16.

Did a true clean install. Put every thing in a safe place. Uninstalled NT7, removed all NT 7 folders. CCleaner, Defraggler. Reinstalled NT7B16. Store your license key and broker connection in a safe place before attempting this.

Put all my workspaces, indicators, templates back in the right place Took longer to reload all the chart data then almost everything else.

Only issue was that two different parameter sets came up for BSV39?????

I'm having major issues with my B16 install.

First, I didn't realize that all of my custom sound files that I had created when using B15 would be gone with the B16 install. My mistake.

I installed B16, had some issues...trying to reinstall it...more issues.. now I'm just praying that I can get back to B15.

When plotting indicators where some lines, usually signal lines, are selected to be dotted, those lines are plotting as solid.

There are issues with the Kinetick adapter and because of that a new Beta is going to be released soon.

Forget about Beta15, this is gonna keep happening, like Zondor just said, until NT gets it together. They really need a get-it-done person to run the show over there. I have no idea what is wrong and do not care, I got something that is awesome even with all the problems.

So start over.

I can not emphasize enough that everything must be saved. Sound files included.

You could do a backup and restore, but I like the hands on approach.

Back everything up, Everything: License key, connection info, templates, workspaces, indicators, sound files, stuff I do not use and do not know about, all of it


Do it by hand - brute force.
  1. Uninstall NT7. I posted somewhere - I can't find it (& am missing Base Ball to do this) how to use the Microsoft Tool to do that.
  2. Run CCleaner or something like that, Defrag,.
  3. Reboot
  4. Install Ninja Trader 7.
  5. Start it.
  6. If it works - Exit.
  7. Add back all stuff backed up including License Key, brokerage info, Indys, workspaces, templates using two copies of Start > Computer (using 2 copies make it easy to move stuff back and forth.
  8. Restart NT
  9. Connect to a data feed
  10. Open each work space one by one, checking to see if everything is OK.
It will work but like anything in life it is worth doing right.

So, careful preparation, and then some time and you too can have a hotrod NT7 like I do.

Remember, I did this in less than 20 minutes today, the chart proves it.

Control Center Help> License Key. Copy and past it into a NotePad File called NTKey along with the connection info:

Control Center Tools > Account Connection > ZenFire (for me) Change (assuming you have one set up)Next

Connectin name (ZenFire for me) Click Next. Copy and paste the User Name and Password into the NTKey Notepad file.

Reverse process to put back Key and Connection info once installed.

YM is going crazy on a super thin DOM.

Just noticed this thread. I downloaded b16 the day it was released. How did you know there was a "new" b16 and what are the differences? Should I be reinstalling?

I had a problem with backups when I loaded the 1st version of 16. Originally loaded it the day it came out. Only today did I finally install the newest version the correct way.

The backup utility worked just fine after reloading.

Have no idea why they pulled it even though did I ask NinjaTrader about the problem. Just said that there were problems that were noticed after release and fixed.

Thanks ZTR. I just tried the backup and it seems fine but I'm going to reinstall anyway. Could you elaborate on the specific problems you had?

Has anyone been game enough to use NT7 for live trades yet?

Treggs, I got an email from NT support telling me about the new version and urging me to try it. I don't have time to be playing around with it at the moment though. I'm still battling just to keep 6.5 running everyday.

Have with most of the previous betas. Did one on my laptop (March, early April?) as a test, made 1 pip and out, so that was back around beta 7, 8 or 9. Since then have made live trades on and off after a day of sim.

I have not tried live trades with 16 (kept 15 on a separate machine dedicated only to the 3 DOMs I watch), but probably will trade 16 live later today, but may wait until Sunday Night when the markets are slow.

If you do I strongly suggest starting with one contract & keep your trade desk on speed dial (I do that anyway).

Imported assemblies that worked for NT 7.0.0.15 are not compatible NT 7.0.0.16. So in case you have any vendor files installed on NT 7.0.0.15 you need

- first to get updates of the vendor assemblies
- uninstall all old assemblies
- then follow process to uninstall NT 7.0.0.15 and to install NT 7.0.0.16
- then install new assemblies....
