    NT8 upgrade from prior version

    Hi,
    I'm currently using NT8 v8.0.17.2 and would like to upgrade to the latest version 8.0.18.1
    I don't want to reinstall all of my imported indicators and workspace.
    Is there an easy way to update it?
    Can I just close NT8 and download the latest version and install it (over-ride)?

    Thank you

    NT8 allows overide on Upgrade install but the dataFeed connection is needed which is only available on live trading days. Ensure files are backedup first before attempt.

      Thanks Emma1,

      You mean live data (green light on the control panel) should be connected before installing the latest version of NT8? and since market is close, I should wait until it opens again on Sunday?

        yes, it will be better to wait and use live data once trading begins.

                This is what is called a 'false positive'. Basically, often when an anti-virus program does not have enough information about another program, it will flag it as malicious. NinjaTrader is not malicious, so I would recommend that you add NinjaTrader to your anti-virus program's exceptions list. If you're unsure how to do this, please contact the support of the anti-virus program.
