I haven't checked, if all the studies I use in my chartbook are standard, so if some are missing, you can download them here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/supportboard/showthread.php?t=15935
I am not a programmer, so everything is from SC , and has nothing to do with your account setup. As I said, the footprint chart is now possible without any add-on, only VAP + bidxask bars. That is what I like with SC. By the way, I didn't had any crash since I left NT.

if you click log button you will see what study is missing.
They are _VC value chart in kiwi8
you need to save save kiwi8.dll post #2 into sierrachart folder. https://www.sierrachart.com/supportboard/showthread.php?t=23893


you also need bidaskhistogram.dll post #24
*User Contributed Custom Studies and Systems* - Sierra Chart

make sure that they are saved as dll, (my browser automatically renames .dll to .download for security purpose)

also the YM.cht has a detached chart, to reattatch;

Select Chart >> Detach/Re-Attach Chart Window on the menu of the chart that's detached, not from the menu on the main window.

Alternatively you can hold down the keys Ctrl+Alt+D while the detached chart is in focus.

Cory,

I loaded kiwi8.dll and bidaskhistogram.dll but no success (see my attached error messages log). You will note that I'm not connected to any data-feed provider as shown by the "NOT CONNECTED" signal. I'd expected that my demo data-feed from TransAct is till on, but it seems it has not been extended as requested by me last week Friday. Also, the "BAVSummation.dll" could not be found. It seems kiwi8.dll and bidaskhistogram.dll are successfully loaded

I've done a reset of Sierra instead of uninstalling and re-installing. Maybe I'm having this challenge because my SP5 is not activated. chrislib says that SP5 is required for the YM.cht.

Cory,

Thanks.

The errors are gone. I can load only few instrument's historical daily charts (even with Download failed message); in any case, my data-feed and Sierra Accounts need to be reactivated to enable me have all the bookcharts and studies collection I setup lat week, to correctly load.

Thanks cory
should have explained the complete instructions in the first place.

cory, do you have a chance, to compare the real time TA feed in the footprint to other feeds? I am not sure, how accurate TA and the historical data from the SC server are.
I am aware that all "retail" feeds in terms of bid/ask data are not 100% reliable, but the direction of cumdelta should be right. I tested TT/Zenfire/esignal last year on NT, and they didn't match to closely, specially on fast action. (Hope it is not to off topic)

Cory and chrislib,

I now have my Sierra (with SP5) successfully up and running and connected to TransAct.

The YM instrument bookchart forms well (a little different from chrislib's), but 6E is NOT (see my attached two screenshots; 6E on the left and YM on the right). Just like I had the same issue with Cory's Lulu.cht bookchart (which was resolved). I've done various setup with the VAP and Footprint studies but I don't seem to be successful.
