    Multiple installations of NT8

    Is it possible to install multiple installations of NT8 on a single computer (using different paths)? Are there any issues with hard coded paths or assumptions of a single database?

    Only a single copy would ever be run and there is only a single user of the computer, so the license should not be an issue.

    The reason for this is to keep two environments separate (i.e. development and trading). I do a lot of development and want to keep all of those files separate from a clean trading environment. I currently do this with multiple computers, but would like to be able to consolidate down to a single computer.

    It is not possible to install multiple instances of NinjaTrader on your PC. However there is a way to accomplish what you desire.

    The "NinjaTrader 8" folder in your documents folder contains all the information which makes NinjaTrader "yours" (workspaces, indicators, connections, etc). NinjaTrader will load from whichever folder is named "NinjaTrader 8" in your documents folder. You can have multiple folders in the Documents folder which you simply rename as you wish to switch. Switching between these folders will allow you to accomplish what you desire. Here is an example:
    • Shut down NinjaTrader
    • Rename your "NinjaTrader 8" folder within the Documents folder to "NinjaTrader 8 Original"
    • Reinstall NinjaTrader - this creates a new "NinjaTrader 8" folder in the documents folder
    • Start NinjaTrader and configure it as you wish

    To switch back:
    • Shut down NinjaTrader
    • Rename your "NinjaTrader 8" folder within the Documents folder to "NinjaTrader secondary"
    • Rename the "NinjaTrader 8 Original" folder within the Documents folder to "NinjaTrader 8"
    • Restart NinjaTrader

        There is a small utility to have separate instances - https://puvox.software/blog/ninjatra...ted-instances/
