I decided to separate discussion of Visual Studio as it deserves its own thread (and to keep the other on topic).

Mike has a link to profiling NinjaScript C# code:
How-to profile NinjaTrader code with Visual Studio 2010

fluxsmith provided a link to the free Visual Studio Express from Microsoft:
Microsoft Express Home - Visual Studio Express and SQL Server Express are free tools

So who uses Visual Studio Express w/ NT? What is your experience, hints, tricks, gotchas?
What do you recommend?

I thought I'd read that NT did not believe Express worked with NT, but I have no clue where I would have read such a thing. If I can get it to work, I will keep posting here. My personal programming experience is actually limited, and I tend to learn from examples and trial & error. Not very efficient but I've gotten by...

LOL. It may be. I just saw Max's post and was about to mention that I did not find his when I did a search on Visual Studio.

Mike, would you like to delete this one?

P.S. Actually his seems to be explicitly and only for Pro -- I've only read his opening post.
