Hello designer,

You can download and install version 7.0.1000.7 from the link below.

Subsequently, you can transfer your settings and data from the old computer to the new computer using a backup file.

Please create a backup file as per the instructions at the link below on the old computer.

Once NinjaTrader created a backup file, it is located at (My) Documents-->NinjaTrader Backup as .ntbk file.

Copy this file to the new computer at the exact same location - (My) Documents-->NinjaTrader Backup.

Start NinjaTrader and restore your backup file.

You can download and install TWS from the IB connection guide below.

I am responding on behalf of Jason.

You can use .NET 4.0 with the most recent version of Ninjatrader.

Please let me know if I may assist further.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
