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

If you are using XP or Vista you will be able to use 6.5. If you are using NT7 on any machine you will have to update to the new version if you are using new 3rd party indicators in the future which will not be compatible with today's Salamander protection. If you are using NT7 on a Windows 7 machine with SP1 installed, any 3rd party indicators using Salamander will break and you will need to update to the new NT7 and download updated indicators from the vendors.
That about sums it up.

Dan

thanks Dan, here a nicer overview-style for all the fact here

> If you are using XP or Vista you will be able to use 6.5.

> If you are using NT7 on any machine you will have to update to the new version

> if you are using new 3rd party indicators in the future which will not be compatible with today's Salamander protection.

> If you are using NT7 on a Windows 7 machine with SP1 installed, any 3rd party indicators using Salamander will break and you will need to update to the new NT7 and download updated indicators from the vendors.


i add a point of my understanding also cause all points should be said clearly - please correct it if its wrong like this :

> if you are using NT 6.5 on WIN 7 , this will NOT work with WIN 7 SP1 anymore at all.

Or run a VM in windows7 to run windows XP.

I know it sounds silly.

But personally, I found that making a windows program that only runs on windows7 SILLY.

Here is some general layman info about the release of SP1, clipped from Windows Secrets newsletter.
Clips begin -

In short, this service pack adds surprisingly little to Windows 7. You'll want to install it — eventually.

...for those of you who followed the conventional wisdom and are waiting for the first service pack before installing Microsoft's newest OS, you waited without good cause. Win 7 SP1 sports a little nip here and a roll-up tuck there — but there's not a single significant enhancement to Win7. And that's good news. It seems, for once, Microsoft turned out a major new product that was relatively problem-free, right from the start.

Service Pack 1's most significant improvements

Uh, there really aren't any. At least not for the average PC user. (SP1 does have a few nifty new features for Windows Server 2008 R2.)

To save you a bit of time and effort, here's a summary:
Higher-definition connections with Remote Desktop: blah blah
More Windows Live ID support: blah blah
An HDMI patch: blah blah
An XML Paper Specification fix: more blah blah

This is a case where "SP" stands for "slim pickings."

...
this first service pack says much about Windows 7. It's surprisingly free of the growing pains that afflicted earlier versions of Windows. Unless you are completely attached to Windows XP, the wait to upgrade is over.

Clips end -

Of course this is heavily edited (blah blahs included) but gets the gist across. What do we glean from this? Windows 7 is pretty good from the get go, SP1 is not needed if you want to still use NT6.5, there is no reason to stick with Vista or XP at this point as all is well in Windoze land.

NinjaTrader 6.5 with Win7 SP1


Unzip attached file. It contains NinjaTrader.Base.dll
Drop it into c:\Program Files\NinjaTrader 6.5\bin folder (click yes for overwrite prompt)

You should be able to run NinjaTrader 6.5 under Windows 7 SP1. I am not sure about 3rd party addons, but they should run fine as well.
