    8.0.4.0 seems to use TradingHours and ninjatrader.sdf in c:\program foled

    After updating from 8.0.3.1 to 8.0.4.0 I noticed that NT is using TradingHours templates and ninjatrader.sdf from C:\program files (x86) folder instead that from documents\Ninjatrader 8 folder.

    I noticed this behavior because in the past I had modified rollover dates and values in some instruments and had added missing holidays in templates (e.g. US equities RTH missing Martin Luther King Day 01/16/2017) and these changes seem disappeared after update

    To be brief I omit to explain in details what led to me to investigate but I enclose some screenshots and information as evidence of this statement.

    First of all I noticed that modified holidays were still in xml templates in documents folder (see TH_InDocumentsFolder.jpg enclosed) but not used I chart.

    So I wrote un indicator to print all holidays in the TH in use in the chart (see TestIndicatorOutputInV8040.jpg).
    here is code snippet
    Code:
                else if (State == State.DataLoaded)
                {
                    Print("Instrument = " + Instrument.FullName + " chart interval = " + Bars.BarsPeriod.BaseBarsPeriodValue + " " + Bars.BarsPeriod.BarsPeriodType);
                    Print("Trading Hour Template in use is " + TradingHours.Name);
                    foreach(KeyValuePair<DateTime, string> holiday in TradingHours.Holidays)
                    {
                      Print(holiday);
                    }
                }
    You can notice that holidays in use as printed by the indicator are those in “US equities RTH.xml” of C:\program files (x86) folder (see TH_InProgramsFolder.jpg) instead of those in “US equities RTH.xml” of documents folder.

    As it regards ninjatrader.sdf seems that NT 8.0.4.0 uses the one in c:\program files (x86) (similarly to TH) because all rollovers were reset to default after the update to 8.0.4.0 (see GCRollovers_InV8040.jpg where GC rollovers values are missing and GC 03-17 is present and it should not) but again present as modified by me after uninstall of version 8.0.4.0 and reinstall of version 8.0.3.1 (see GCRollovers_inV9031.jpg) without further actions

    Please could you take a look at this problem?

    Thank You very much

      Alan,
      Thank you for your reply.

      I was aware of TH reset to default when updated from 8.0.2.0 to 8.0.3.0 No problem I handled it but this is a completely different story

      First of all I’m updating from 8.0.3.1 to 8.0.4.0 and last but not least my TH templates are still there with all my changes in it.

      Using Control center menu “tools/trading Hours” it shows my customization to templates and if I make some further modification they are stored.

      But when I open a chart my customizations to TH are lost and if you read carefully my first post You’ll notice that I have narrowed down possible cause to the use of TH templates present in C:\Program Files (x86) folder instead of those in documents folder.

      Same happens to instruments and rollovers. Any modification made through control center isn’t apparently stored at all but if you browse the ninjatrader.sdf with visual studio 2015 SQL server compact toolbox they are indeed stored so I think again that NT reads from ninjatrader.sdf present in C:

      In my opinion this is in some way related to what is reported in this other thread

      http://ninjatrader.com/support/forum...ad.php?t=96045

      Now I’ve rolled back to 8.0.3.1 and all is functioning again but I am available to further investigation if useful.

          Hello aerofly,

          I’ve made a video where I modify the ASX template by removing trade days and holidays, apply the trading hours template to a chart, shut down, restart. The changes stick.

          I then show that the template file inside My Documents>NT8>Templates>Trading Hours>ASX Interest Rate was the file modified. When I navigate to C>Program Files (x86)>NinjaTrader 8>Templates>Trading hours and open ASX Interest Rate, the file is not modified.

          Video:
          https://www.screencast.com/t/bI00EgEb8bqb

          Are you apply to replicate the steps in the video and obtain different results?

          Are you modifying the trading hours template within NinjaTrader?

          I look forward to your reply.

            Hello Alan,
            here it is.

            Actually the problem occurs only if the chart use TH <use instrument settings> and this is why in your video everything is working fine

            Here is my video to demonstrate the issue

            https://www.screencast.com/t/WpA9cg3CxDx

            In the following video I demonstrate the second issue I have: instruments changes do not survive after restart of ninjatrader

            https://www.screencast.com/t/sSrt0Kq1B

            Please let me know if You need further information
