1. Delete license file: C:\Users\<Windows user name>\AppData\Local\MZpack\MZpack 3 NT8\Settings.xml

Q: I have license checking issues
A: WARNING: Description of Licensing system starting from MZpack ver 3.13.4. Prior versions had different licensing systems and are not supported now. Update up to the latest version, please.
Licensing system of the product is based on the checking on what machine do you currently run the product.
We use Hardware Id for this purpose. This is no NinjaTrader machine Id! The Hardware Id of your machine is stored on our server at the moment of activation (when you enter the license key and click Activate).
To calculate Hardware Id we use motherboard Id, CPU(s) Id, two (or less) active network adapters, and serials of two (or less) first physical drives.
You can add network adapters and/or HDD/SSD drives later. But you must keep all hardware parts that you had at the moment of activation.
Changing motherboard, CPU will cause a license checking error.
In this case, contact support, please.
Q: Can I use two indicators with different subscription periods on the same machine?
A: This is not possible by default. E.g. lifetime and subscription licenses can’t be used on the same machine, all subscriptions periods must start and end on the same dates. Licensing periods must be equal. Contact support if you really need this.
Q: High CPU load, long chart loading or chart is not loaded at all, wrong positions of indicator’s plots.
A: Delete your Ninja database cache data:
• Shut down NinjaTrader.
• Open the Documents > NinjaTrader 8 > db folder.
• Delete the sub-folder named ‘cache’.
• Restart NinjaTrader and test.
The NT8 data cache folder saves pre-formatted data to suit your bars types, the purpose of which is to enable faster startup times. Sometimes in certain circumstances, your chart bars will be full of errors, so it doesn’t hurt to clear the cache once in a while, or every day if you are having issues. Also, you can read more details and get a dedicated utility. If this will not help please do as follow: In Ninja menu: Tools – Database Management – Repair DB – Repair
Q: Is it possible to have the volume profile as behind of candle bars?
- Select chart bars by clicking on one of them
- Press and hold Shift key
- Scroll mouse wheel to bring chart bars to the front
Q: MZpack for NinjaTrader 7. High memory usage or “Out of system resources” message appears after some MZpack indicators were placed on the chart.
A: NinjaTrader requires a huge amount of system memory in some cases.
- Check if any unused workspaces with MZpack indicators were opened.
- Set Days to load parameter of the chart is equal to 0 (i.e intraday market data only) for all chart with tick data series BEFORE applying any of MZpack chart templates or indicators to it. Set this parameter to no more than 5 for all others charts.
We added a parameter for all MZpack orderflow-based indicators to control the amount of market data loaded for tick charts. It set to “Intraday data only” by default. If you need more historical data on chart set this parameter to false and control amount of loaded data by Days to load parameter
