Thank you Andrew. I am not sure if I got your point right. I have installed the MC 64 bits version on my new PC and I copied the indicator text in a new indicator on my 64 bits MC so I believe that I am using the 64 bits compiler. Is it the subject of your investigation ?

Thank you

There is a confirmed issue: MultiChart 32 bit has a compilation issue on any Windows 8 (32 or 64 bit). If you installed MultiCharts 64 bit on your Windows 8, then it should work fine. If you still have the same issue in MultiCharts 64 bit on Windows 8, please let me know and tell me your build number of MC (Help -> About MultiCharts).

Good you clarified Andrew, I tried both methods. Importing from the 32 bits version caused the error and I also just copied the text of the indicator as in my first post here and then pasted in my fresh new installation windows 8 64 bits and the compiling caused the same error.

I have Build 5622

Thank you

Thank you Andrew, can you update the instructions to include Windows 8, the file structure is different and I don't want to play with the registry without instructions for Windows 8. I have attached in the first post of this thread the compiler log. I am not sure which error I have, I believe it is the "GCC short paths" error type, can you confirm ?

Thank you for your support

I have checked, the paths are the same on Windows 8, so the instruction has been updated. Please follow the described there steps in order to get it resolved.

Hello, I have tried the first solution with the updater because I did not have any registry error message when installing MC.

I made sure that with Task Manager that MC is all shut, then after running the updater, there was no error in the log of the updater but I still had the compilation error when compiling an empty study

Then I tried the second solution but I do not have the same registry structure. The path you mention in the instructions is the following

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem

But my registry starts diverging at SYSTEM, on my PC there is no SYSTEM but SYSTEM RESTORE and in there is two folders \SYSTEM\CFG and \SYSTEM\SETUP\GENERALIZE and SYSTEM\SETUP\UNATTENDED

Pls let me know what to do. If you can answer in the coming hour, I would appreciate, I am in Singapore and will lose another day if I cannot solve today.

Thank you
