Default Attention: Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 Users

We have seen cases recently where Windows XP users are unable to connect to the NinjaTrader license server. The primary cause being that Microsoft is no longer updating security certifications via Windows Update. Microsoft announced end-of-support for Windows XP on April 8th, 2014 and Windows Server 2003 July 14, 2015.

Microsoft Announcement for Windows XP:

Microsoft Announcement for Windows Server 2003:

In light of this NinjaTrader will be dropping support for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 operating systems and recommend that any remaining users update to a supported operating system as soon as possible. We continue to support: Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 operating systems.

Note: There is a temporary manual install of security certifications available for those of you who will not have immediate access to an updated operating system. Please contact platformsupport[at]ninjatrader[dot]com for details.

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. View Full Risk Disclosure.

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.
