Hello designer,

You can download and install version 7.0.1000.7 from the link below.

Subsequently, you can transfer your settings and data from the old computer to the new computer using a backup file.

Please create a backup file as per the instructions at the link below on the old computer.

Once NinjaTrader created a backup file, it is located at (My) Documents-->NinjaTrader Backup as .ntbk file.

Copy this file to the new computer at the exact same location - (My) Documents-->NinjaTrader Backup.

Start NinjaTrader and restore your backup file.

You can download and install TWS from the IB connection guide below.

I am responding on behalf of Jason.

You can use .NET 4.0 with the most recent version of Ninjatrader.

Please let me know if I may assist further.
