So I decided to install the new NT7 to test it out. Did a clean install and did not migrate anything over from 6.5 when asked during the initial install.

For some reason I have a limited instrument list. I can not see SPY, QQQQ, TNA etc as well as some other stocks. (TIVO, PWER) Please tell me I don't have to manually enter them. I didn't for 6.5

Try loading a new chart with an instrument that is in the list. Then while on the chart, just type SPY (etc) and press enter, see if that works. It's been a while since I used NT for charting, but my memory seems to think that is one way to get it to import instrument settings from your data provider.

I get the error "Unable to subscribe to market data: Please assign an additional exchange to this instrument in the Instrument Manager QQQQ Default"
Then another pop up window says "Error on loading chart data for QQQQ Default': Unable to change order. Please assign addition....same text as above"

Again, this is a clean install of NT 7 release.
Works perfect on NT 6.5
