Default no audible alerts

Good morning. Was using NT7 with custom software and audible alerts worked fine. Now with NT8 audible alerts isn't working. Any suggestions?

Hello rexsole,

Thank you for your post,

To test, go to Start > Search "Adjust System Volume" > Press Enter.

In the following window, is NinjaTrader 8 listed to make sounds currently? If not listed at all, go to the Control Center's Tools > Options menu to verify what sounds are enabled, then use NinjaTrader to create a sound ( I suggest using Connection).

We look forward to assisting further.

Are you using a Direct Edition license? If so, alerts will display, but without sound. You can add PlaySound to your Alert code section as a workaround.

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.
