Default NT 8 stuck on opening

Well, this is embarrassing. Apparently, I have so many workspaces active that, when I start my computer and try to open NT8, I get that damned rotating circle that shows that the program is loading...and loading...and loading...and it never freaking stops rotating. Basically, I guess the program has frozen. I've tried this a few times, restarting my computer each time, but I can never seem to get beyond the rotating circle. Can someone please tell me how to start the program without trying to open those dozen or more workspaces that I have currently active?

Thanks,
Tasuki

Just figured it out...posting in case anyone else runs into this problem. Looks like all I had to do was to move the workspaces from c:/Documents/Ninjatrader 8/Workspaces to some other folder (I just created one on the desktop). NT 8 opened no problem.

I guess this is a warning to anyone who has too many workspaces (like me :}...

Hello Tasuki,

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.
