Win8 -- Can't compile programs

Postby familytrading » 05 Feb 2013

I am in the process of setting up a new computer and have done this a number of times. This is the first time with Windows 8. I have MC 8.0 working with Windows 8 with no issues on the chart side and data side.

I then imported a number of studies and indicators that I have been using in both TS and MC since 2007. It seems none of my custom stuff seems to want to compile.

This is the error code that is generated on each of my programs. The windows 8 is 64 bits and your application is the 64 bit version

Compile error
errLine 0, errColumn 0, errLineEnd 0, errColumnEnd 0
causal study: (Function)

Just to show you even on a simple indicator that calculates your Profit and loss of your positions in an histogram, the code is shown below. It will not compile.

Is their a known issue with W8 or did I do something really stupid.

Here is the code that I am trying to compile. It is a cool program that plots either a red or green histogram dependent upon your profit position.

net ( 0 ) ;

net= I_OpenEquity - I_closedEquity;

if net > 0
then setplotcolor(1, green);
if net < 0
then setplotcolor(1, red );

Plot1( net , " Trade Net" ) ;
plot2( 0 , " Zero" ) ;

Good luck with this one????
