Hello,

I am currently using WLD 3. Where can I find more about the differences, advantages, disadvantes etc. to WLD 5? Is there a document available somewhere or a good forum posting?

Hi Eugene, The comparison is very helpful, one question:
In the Development part and After section, against COM support, you say:

Include references to other assemblies for top notch extensibility

Can you further explain this?

Hi Pallav,

For code-based strategies, Wealth-Lab's Editor starting from 5.1 contains a section called "References" where you specify .NET assemblies to be included in this particular strategy window. For assemblies in the GAC, it takes enabling an appropriate checkbox. For every other .NET assembly, a reference is added by navigating to the file.

Thanks Eugene, Where can I get some documentation on this?

Utilizing the References section is obvious when you have worked with the References dialog of MS Visual Studio. So anything you find in this regard (adding references to .NET assemblies to project) for Visual Studio is good. Is there a particular difficulty I can help with?

I intend to upgrade to WLD 5 soon.
Is it possible to run WLD4 and WLD5 side by side, that means, to keep the WLD4 installation?
Or will WLD4 overwritten by during the installation process?

Yes. Completely independent products. (Note: it's possible to read the accumulated WLD4 data such as intraday historical datasources).

No single WLD4 file is touched.
