You don't need to build it, just install it by double clicking on the downloaded file.

@RsiAtr II:  18 Sep 2014, 17:12


Dear Traders, All algorithms that you download from cTDN are already compiled. Once you install cBot to the platform (by double clicking on the file) it is ready to be used. You need to compile (build) cBot only if you made a change in the source code. If you do not change code of the algorithm you do not need to compile (build) it.

Your indicator cannot be opened. Please reupload it.

Yes, you can specify AutoRescale = false for Indicator attribute

Please use GetIndexByExactTime method instead of iterating all indexes. It will speed up your indicator.

@Golden Dragon:  17 Jan 2014, 11:16


Hello, Those are actually warnings not errors. We will fix that in the future releases.  You can use the downloaded cBot without even building it. The new method of downloading and installing cBots and Indicators does not require you to build them unless you need to modify the code.  

@Ultimate Pivot Points 2:  23 Dec 2013, 10:38


You may specify the timezone in the Indicator Attribute [Indicator(IsOverlay = true, AutoRescale = false, TimeZone = TimeZones.UTC)]
