    The type or namespace name 'UniversalBase' could not be found

    @UniversalOptimizer.cs The type or namespace name 'UniversalBase' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) CS0246 1041 34
    I get this strange error, how can I fix this? I do not understand what could be causing it. I haven't modified @UniversalOptimizer.cs

    It is preventing me from compiling my other sources.(this is the only error)

    it refers to this line

    public sealed class Universal : UniversalBase

    In this particular case, the 'UnversalOptimizer.cs' file needs to be removed. Follow these steps:
    • Open Windows File Explorer (hotkey = Windows key + E)
    • Navigate to Documents > NinjaTrader 8 > bin > Custom > Optimizers folder
    • Delete '@UniversalOptimizer.cs'
    • In NinjaTrader, recompile

      ok, will do - so this is a useless file?


      I don't need to optimize anything if that matters

        It was inadvertently included in the 8.0.17.0 installer for a short time. In the future, it may be included in the installation without causing compile errors.

            We do not recommend using an older version of NinjaTrader. The current version is 8.0.17.2 and if any issues occur with this version, we should troubleshoot that.

            You can find the previously supported version on our website. Enter your email on the main page, select 'NinjaTrader 8' from the drop down list, then look for the 'prior version' link.

                Please include a screenshot of the actual compile errors from the NinjaScript Editor

                  they are gone now since I deleted those 3 files. They are the only 3 files that gave problems.

                    The Namespace "UniversalBase" came back when I upgraded to the latest version of NinjaTrader Version 8.0.17.2 64-bit this week.
                    I removed it so I could compile after searching for the problem and finding this thread.
                    Is that still the recommend fix?

                    Thanks

                      Yes, that should be fine. There was a brief time during which the public installer included some files still in development, so anyone experiencing this issue must have downloaded 8.0.17.0 during that time. Removal of the files is the solutions.
