    NT Version (8.1.2.0) import error with a protected compiled assembly

    Hi, with the new version (8.1.2.0) it is no longer possible to import a protected compiled assembly!
    Exporting works without errors, but an error is displayed when importing.
    This apparently only affects those with Agile.net protected version
    Agile.net version: 6.6.0.35

    I have no problems with the previous version (8.1.1.7).

    Here is a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoO2TJ6AGFU

    What exactly is the error message?

    Sorry, your video is not clear enough for me
    to read the small print of the error message.

        Ah yes, thank you, I can zoom in to see it ... much better.

        But, sorry, I can't read the end of the error message.

        Is that German?

          It almost looks like the video shows you trying to
          import the same assembly you just exported.

          Is that correct?

              Does your export have any enumerated types in it?

              Are you trying to import the assembly onto the same NinjaTrader that also has the source version you just exported?

                1. No
                2. Yes

                  I don't read German, what does the error message say in English?

                    NinjaTrader_ChelseaB We're going to need help with this one. I agree this protected export functionality appears to be broken on 8.1.2.0 and was able to reproduce the issue described upthread.

                    To do so, here is what I did:
                    • I downloaded your MyCustomIndicator.cs which, as you say, is a completely empty "new indicator" named MyCustomIndicator.cs with no code or variables whatsoever.
                    • I compiled it, to make sure it would compile, on 8.1.2.0.
                    • I exported it as a compiled, protected assembly. This machine has the full Agile.NET 6.6.0.37.
                    • I deleted the MyCustomIndicator.cs and recompiled without it.
                    • I attempted to import the compiled, protected assembly made in the prior step.
                    The resulting trace looks like this:

                    2023-10-29 14:29:42:333 WARNING: Error compiling import assembly: C:\Users\Bruce DeVault\Documents\NinjaTrader 8\bin\Custom\MyCustomIndicator.cs(60,21): error CS0234: The type or namespace name 'MyCustomIndicator' does not exist in the namespace 'NinjaTrader.NinjaScript.Indicators' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

                    The empty indicator looks like this:

                    Code:
                    namespace NinjaTrader.NinjaScript.Indicators
                    {
                        public class MyCustomIndicator : Indicator
                        {
                            protected override void OnStateChange()
                            {
                                if (State == State.SetDefaults)
                                {
                                    Description = @"Enter the description for your new custom Indicator here.";
                                    Name = "MyCustomIndicator";
                                    Calculate = Calculate.OnBarClose;
                                    IsOverlay = false;
                                    DisplayInDataBox = true;
                                    DrawOnPricePanel = true;
                                    DrawHorizontalGridLines = true;
                                    DrawVerticalGridLines = true;
                                    PaintPriceMarkers = true;
                                    ScaleJustification = NinjaTrader.Gui.Chart.ScaleJustification.Right;
                                    //Disable this property if your indicator requires custom values that cumulate with each new market data event.
                                    //See Help Guide for additional information.
                                    IsSuspendedWhileInactive = true;
                                }
                                else if (State == State.Configure)
                                {
                                }
                            }
                    
                            protected override void OnBarUpdate()
                            {
                                //Add your custom indicator logic here.
                            }
                        }
                    }​

                      The same procedure repeated, but without making it a PROTECTED assembly (just a compiled one, which does not use Agile.NET) works fine. To have a clean test, I recommend that after you remove the source version and recompile, you restart the platform so you're absolutely sure it isn't confused by the prior incarnation of the indicator for the testing purpose.

                        There is a chance it is failing for me on the full Agile.NET but might succeed on the NT-specific version. But, if this is what it looks like at the surface, it means all commercial projects will have to remain on 8.1.1.7 for now because we can't make a compiled protected assembly that imports.

                          Thank you for taking the time to report this. But, I just want to clarify something here - it's not that it's no longer possible to import a protected compiled assembly - it's that it's no longer possible on 8.1.2.0 to PRODUCE a protected compiled assembly that imports. To the best of my awareness, all protected compiled assemblies produced on 8.1.1.7 still import correctly on 8.1.2.0.

                            Yes, exactly. Thank you Bruce for checking and confirming the problem.

                              To me, however, that means that NT didn't check this at all before releasing the update, otherwise they would have discovered the problem themselves. just unbelievable..
