Problem importing an .eld bought from EMini-Watch

Postby vandevenne steven » 15 Nov 2009

Hi All,

I bought the Better Momentum indicator from Emini-Watch for TS.
The file you obtain is an .eld.

However I cannot get it imported in Multicharts.

I tried the following:

Import: Power Editor 'reads' the file but thos not show any importable material (see attached picture 'import')

Import Read-only: does not "see" the.eld file

Rename the .eld file to .sef and try Import Read-only. This does not work (error box in attached file .sef rename error)

Has anyone else encountered this problem? :( :(


I tried these things using PowerEditor from MC versions 5.5 and 5.0.
I had no problem importing a free indicator from the site (Better Volume indocator).

Thanks for your replies

Steven

because the protected eld is for TS only.
it cannot be opened by MultiCharts.


You can ask Emini-Watch to see if they have a MultiCharts version,
or
you can ask MultiCharts technical support to see if they can convert it for you.

TJ,

Thanks for your reply.
I already suggested to E-mini Watch to compile the indicator with a multicharts trial version. (Even promised to put in praise for their work among the MC community :wink: )

I am awaiting their response now.

I like the suggestion to ask TSSuport to recompile it, but am afraid there may be legal issues there.

(Maybe Andrew Kirillov) has some ideas as well.

A short update:

Barry from Emini-watch helped me in a prompt and kind matter by recompiling the .eld for Multicharts.

I got to know the site from a post by TJ.
It's definitely worth checking out: www.emini-watch.com

That's definitely good customer service.

I am glad it worked out.
