I need to install and open

Pepperstone1 cTrader   ,  Pepperstone2 cTrader   and  Pepperstone3 cTrader

Dear Trader,

We don't provide users with the ability to choose the path of the installation files and to install multiple instances of cTrader of the same Broker. However, you can open multiple instances of cTrader of the same Broker and being logged in with different accounts.

onlinetoriches,

I understand the problem running several cTrader's on a VPS at the same time. It takes too much of resources especially from the RAM memory used. To run cTrader without problems it will take 1GB RAM on the VPS. Running 3 cTrader's as in your case we are talking about 2.5-3GB RAM needed. RAM memory is very expensive on a VPS and of course it would be nice to be able to use just one instance of cTrader and several accounts opened at the same time. 

Also to be in control of several accounts and maybe different brokers too can be confusing and hard to have a good oversight of all the accounts. Have a look at this thread where you can download Broker 1.0 cBot which can easily be run on all the accounts to give a better control of all the different trading accounts.

I am as confused as a cameleon in a sweets packet.

Jeez, all I want to do is have a DEMO cTrade and a LIVE Ctrader on the same desktop! Whay make it so difficult?

Then they get paid to do this! Irritating!

Jeez, that is so kind of you. It is better to irritate the customer than to please him. Who was your primary school teacher?

Hi exellentoak@gmail.com,

You can run two instances on cTrader at the same time and access two different accounts in parallel.

Thank you Panagiotis,

May I now ask, how?

My problem is when I open the trading station, it will always revert to the instance that I have last closed. Worst is, when I open the second instance, I have to reload all my Bots that I had loaded on it from sctratch again.

So, there must be a method that I am not aware of.

Regards,

Hi exellentoak@gmail.com,

There is no secret method, just start cTrader as you would for the first instance. Any instance you open should load the last loaded workspace as well as the last used cBots, I just tested it and I don't see any issues. cBots are loaded fine. You can use different accounts for every instance.

Best Regards,

Panagiotis

I am sorry Panagiotis, But it does not work like that for me.

Here is what happens. I have downloaded the cTrader platform and I open it to load all of my LIVE Cbots. I now keep this open and trading.

                                     I then open another platform/instance but it does not estabilsh a seperate desktop icon), yet I can open a demo account and load my tester CBots and trade seperately from the LIVE platform.

                                     Now, for some reason, I may need to close down both, for maintenance purposes, for a weekend, whatever the reason may be. It is when I start up after this close down, that it will only load the last instance I closed down's detail. So, say I closed down the demo version first and LIVE last. Then on the re-start I will get my LIVE detail back and I can simply activate the individual cBots and trade again. When I load the demo version again, form the same desktop icon, I find the second instance empty (totally devoid from the Cbots I had loaded). So in order to continue with demo, I then have to re-load everything from scratch.

                                   Will you kindly advise as to what I am doing wrong?

                                   Johan
