I have installed the BBFree extension.

I only have WL Pro 64bit version installed.
I checked all programs in the programs install/uninstall and there is only the 64bit version
I have also checked the program file both normal and x86 and the WL does not appear in the x86 folder.

When I click on create new dataset the BBFree option is not visible while FIDO ASCII YAHOO are.

Help please.

The solution in the FAQ does not work for me even after double checking.

Just to make my point clear: the BBFree provider works in 64-bit Wealth-Lab. In fact, 64-bit is my primary environment used for designing and testing (I'm the author).

In Wealth-Lab's main folder under Program Files, do you see these files?

WealthLab.DataProviders.B........Free.dll
WealthLab.DataProviders.MarketManager.dll

The B...free one is there


Marketmanager.dll is not.

and can be found HERE:

/Extensions/Details/WealthLabDataProvidersDatabase-29

Thanks Eugene.

For those of you not quite following. You need to download the database provider extension in addition to the BBFree one.

Your understanding is correct: the Market Manager is a required component and without it, the BB Free provider will not load (symptoms: created DataSets are missing, not appearing on the Wizard).

I'm not sure if the MM comes with Wealth-Lab Pro now but it is part of Developer 6.3. If for any reason it's missing (e.g. uninstallation of a MM-based provider), you can always get the MM simply by updating the built-in ASCII provider from the Extension Manager.

Due to demise of the free data feed we have to take down the BBFree provider from the Extensions section.
