    Ninja 8 will probably need .Net 4.5 - I think there was something mentioned in the Ninja 8 threads. Ninja 7 uses only .Net 3.5 I think. And installing 4.5 also installs the 3.5.

    I'm not sure I'm the right guy to make a Mono thread - I can't even read the output that Mono gives when trying to run Ninja in it.

    I went back through my notes and discovered that I made a mistake.....my prior quote should read...
    "I tested dotnet45 via Wine-Staging 1.7.51 and NT7 with the same conditions as dotnet35 or dotnet35sp1 and NT7 did work for the few minutes I tested. I was curious but that is all. I'm not commenting any further."
    I'm sorry for the confusion. I have not tested mono and do not intend to... in this thread. Testing linux, mono and NT7 should have it's own thread.
    Thanks

    I'm not sure what else I can say at this point other than what I have stated in posts 33, 37 and 40.

I've done that, it doesn't work - Ninja doesn't even start. I tried both with and without mdac, msxml, richedit, vb/vc - same. I tried switching those dll-s to native you recomended - no change.

    I installed the Linux Mono package, but I'm not quite sure what to do with it.
    Mono and dotnet can not be installed at the same time as far as I know which is why the dotnet script un-installs Mono. I'm sorry I can't help any further with Mono, maybe you can be the Mono "expert". I need to stay focused on the dotnet version until I'm finished.

    There is a newer version of Winetricks in Github by the way - 26 August 2015.

    What do you mean same conditions as dotnet (for Mono)
    Code:
    sh winetricks -q gdiplus mdac27 mdac28 msftedit msxml4 msxml6 riched20 riched30 vb6run vcrun2003 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 vcrun2012
    this?

    Your answer is in post #31, my previous post and I'm not done with my current test.

    I thought the 23 August post (where 1.7.47-49 are mentioned) was about Wine-staging and the 29 July about plain Wine.

    Ninja available accounts too big for me - I'm still on CFDs and FX minilots. FXCM kinda fits, but too expensive. Their data is excellent however.

    I use Ninja only for the second charts, if Metatrader 4 or 5 had at least 15-second native chart I would not use Ninja at all.

    I don't really plan trading in Linux until I fix my cpu issue, I'm just curious whether Ninja works here or not.

    For the moment Ninja can't run in Mono at all.
