Jump to navigation Jump to search
Note: a MultiCharts license can be running in online mode only on one PC at a time. In order to get real time data and trade, MultiCharts needs to be authorized and running in online mode. You can use your license on PC#2 in offline mode for writing strategies and backtesting using locally stored dat while your PC#1 is in online mode. You can switch between two computers: close MC on PC#1 and start MC on PC#2 in online mode.
- Authorize MultiCharts with your registration name and code on PC#2 first;
- Switch MultiCharts to offline mode (MultiCharts -> File tab->Preferences->Data server mode-> Offline);
- Disable the Internet connection on this PC or right click on the Authorization button in the bottom right corner of the main MultiCharts window, go to Proxy settings, check "Use HTTP Proxy to authorize, type in any information into the Host and Port fields, click OK.";
- Start MultiCharts on PC#1 in Online mode(MultiCharts -> File tab->Preferences->Data server mode-> Online).
Note:You need to repeat this procedure every 30 days.
Note:While authorizing on PC#2 you will receive a message “Do you want to terminate the session on a different machine” if MultiCharts is currently running on PC#1.
