Version 1.0.1 (Trial Download)

Posted: September 12, 2021

Adaptrade Editor is a point-and-click trading strategy editor, designed as a stand-alone Windows program. (Note: Editor is also integrated into Adaptrade Builder. If you plan to take a trial of Builder version 4.0.0 or later, that trial will include Editor, so there's no need to take a separate trial of Editor). You can use Editor to write trading strategies for TradeStation, MultiCharts, NinjaTrader 7/8, MetaTrader 4, and AmiBroker using point-and-click user interface elements, rather than typing scripting language code into a text editor.

Note: This download is for the trial version only. The trial version and the regular, licensed version are identical except that the trial only runs for 30 days and cannot be activated to convert it to the licensed version. After purchase, the licensed version will be available through the license portal online through your account at Softwarekey.com; current licensees should visit the customer license page and click the Download button to obtain this release. The licensed version is activated using the license ID and activation password from your purchase receipt (also available on your license page). See Ordering Information for more information on installing and activating the licensed version.

Download Instructions. For best results, click the download link and save the installation file (below) to your computer's hard drive. Make a note of the location where the file is saved on your computer. After the download is complete, locate the .exe file and double-click it to start the installation. Follow the prompts to complete the installation. After installation, the Editor program icon should appear on your desktop and in the programs list in the start menu.

By default, the software is installed in the folder Program Files\Adaptrade Software\Adaptrade Editor 1.0.1. Eight example files are provided in the Examples folder (Program Files\Adaptrade Software\Adaptrade Editor 1.0.1\Examples).

Note: The installation also includes files that must be installed separately into the trading platform. For each supported language, there is a corresponding folder in the installation directory containing files that must be copied or installed separately. These folders are EasyLanguage (for TradeStation and MultiCharts), NinjaScript7 (for NinjaTrader 7), NinjaScript8 (for NinjaTrader 8), MT4 (for MetaTrader 4), and AFL (for AmiBroker). Please refer to the installation section of the user's guide for instructions on how to copy or install these files to the proper locations. Failure to install these files will result in errors when compiling or running strategies created by Editor. These files are the same ones installed with Adaptrade Builder, versions 3.4 through 4.0.1. If you've installed these files for Builder, there's no need to re-install them for Editor.

After opening the program, the help files can be accessed by pressing F1. The help files contain the same content as the PDF user's guide.
