Help with Migrating Ninjatrader 7 & Sierra Chart to new computer issues.

I Need a bit of help with Migrating Ninjatrader 7, as well as Sierra Chart to a New Computer.
There are seperate issues for each Platform on new computer.
On Ninjatrader 7 i cannot get My Custom Indicators to load.
On Sierra Chart there is a Message that says "MSVCR100.dll is missing on your computer"
So Sierra Chart will not allow me to log on once i click on Icon that message appears.

Migrating issues


I am able to use Ninjatrader 7 on my new computer with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit without issues, but i cannot get the custom Indicators to load by way of importing through Ninjascript.
There is message that says there are Errors with Indicators and i must compile them before i can import them.
I have tried but i cannot get passed this.
On my old computer i am using Version 7.0.1000.14 and new Version is 7.0.1000.26 current on the new computer.

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

Your custom indicators (and all the standard ones, too) on Ninja are in this folder:

C:\Users\your user name\Documents\NinjaTrader 7\bin\Custom\Indicator

(Where "your user name" is, well, your user name on that computer. )

If you download and install NT on the new PC, it will create these folders. You can then just copy the indicators from the old to the new. Use a thumb drive or even a DVD if you're not on a network.

You can also get to the folder by just clicking on Documents and going to NinjaTrader 7 and then drilling down to the Indicator folder.

I seem to remember that there may be issues is you have indicators with custom .dll's. I don't recall the solution there.

Otherwise, just copy your indicators to the same folder on your new machine. Then you'll need to open the NT Edit Ninjascript window and compile any indicator at all -- it will force a compile of all of them.

You can also get your custom templates, if any, from the C:\Users\bobwest\Documents\NinjaTrader 7\templates\Chart folder.

This should do it for NT. No idea about SC, sorry. You could try posting on their user board, or searching it first.

Bob.

For some indicators you can't just migrate them by export/import route. Find their zip file and import them directly to your new ninja.

For Sierra, copy your old directory from old computer to the new computer (C:\SierraChart). Then, download and install Sierra from their website. This will install the missing Microsoft libraries and keep all your settings.

Mike

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.
