I only know an indirect solution to this problem

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

I have had this problem as well, and manually deleting was not the best solution. I think what you should do is the following:

(a) Rename your folder Own Documents -> NinjaTrader 7 to Own Documents -> NinjaTrader 7 Old

(b) Then start NinjaTrader and it will create a new folder with the default settings. Shutdown NinjaTrader again.

(c) You can now copy relevant information from the old folder to the new one

- copy all folders from NinjaTrader 7 Old -> bin -> Custom to the newly created one, but do not copy the files in this directory
- copy the entire folders NinjaTrader 7 Old -> db, NinjaTrader 7 Old -> templates and NinjaTrader 7 Old -> workspaces

(d) Then start NinjaTrader. Edit one of the indicators and compile via F5.

You will now have a clean setup without the assemblies and can reimport any assemblies that you need. In the process you will have lost some settings:

- instrument settings (session templates, rollover dates, offsets)
- customized session templates
- connections

but your workspaces and chart templates as well as your database should be there.

(e) If the procedure did not work, you can go back and try again. Delete the new folder and rename the (so far unchanged) folder NinjaTrader 7 Old back to NinjaTrader 7.

I am personally switching folders often, as I have several setups with different datafeeds.

If you delete them manually, you need to also go to Tools - Edit - Indicator, pick anything, open it, right-click and choose something like "References" (its been a while, going from memory), and then find those .dll's you deleted and remove them from the list, then restart Ninja.


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.
