Backtesting Edition was designed for using MultiCharts offline. Yes, no Internet connection is needed to use MultiCharts Backtesting Edition (BTE). You get access to all the tools required for building and enhancing your strategies while your regular license is used for live trading on another machine. Backtesting edition has all that you need (and even more) for strategy development, backtesting, and optimization, which makes it a perfect solution for users who want a set of features for trading system development and analysis.
Full-featured MultiCharts version and Backtesting Edition are two separate products and configurations of the application, which means the Advanced Strategy Pack features included in BTE license will not work in Standard full-featured license.
