Infinity got my Sierra trial for me which did not come with SP5. I'm on InfinityAT platform SIM (demo) mode. I have just signed up, today, for my own Sierra trial which is for 15 days. I also plan to subscribe to the real SP5 when my trial expires.
I don't know the newly implemented post restrictions on futures.io (formerly BMT). Maybe you can't even receive PMs too. In any case, can you use your private e-mail address to send the Sierra bookcharts to my e-mail address email@example.com.

Now I mess things up here. Sorry.
I didn't checked the allowed file extensions. So in the zip-file is the chartbook for YM and the study collection for a type of footprint chart. Copy both to the data folder.
Then you should be able do select the study in the drop down field.
The following user says Thank You to chrislb for this post:
Please tell me the common file extensions for Sierra Chart and I will add them to the forum allowed extensions.
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. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

There are different extensions, but I think the most useful is .cht for "chartbook", which contains one or more charts with most of the needed information. You can rename them, and change the charts to every instrument you want. For indicators/studies you need .dll and .cpp
The studies collection and the bookchart are all contained in the zip file. I already put them in the appropriate folder. However, my account is not Acivated (that is what Sierra says on Login). I've contacted SierraChart to activate my account.
Meanwhile, I still proceeded to load the studies collection and the bookchart but some studies are missing. The only studies I see are Footprint (Volume By Price), Overlay (single Line), Volume By Price, Custome DLL Study, CountDown Timer, and Current Price Line. Maybe, it is required for my account to be activated for me to be able to correctly load your studies collection and bookchart. Or, maybe this file extension issue that Mike is requesting for, do not allow the contents of the zip file to be correctly posted on futures.io (formerly BMT) forum. If he sorts that out, you may need to re-post the zip file.
