The documentation for the Genetic Optimizer (, in Section 1, says " can use companion Genetic Optimizer Test application to quickly determine optimal population and generation counts."

Where can one find that application?

It's WealthLab.Optimizers.Genetic.Test.exe in the Wealth-Lab's program folder. However, it's been broken (crashes on start). There's no ETA for a fix at the moment as we have higher priority tasks.

Hi Eugene, The application seems to be running again. Is there any reference that describes it's use? it seems that it simulates a GA run by using the exhaustive results. But if I have exhaustive results, why would I bother with running a GA in the first place?

I am looking to see if it can aide in the estimation of initial population counts and expected generations, but obviously I don't have exhaustive results with me. How should I use this tool to that effect?

Hi Jorge,

There's no formal reference that describes its usage. If you have a Strategy results with similar required runs, you can perform a genetic search in the Test utility to quickly determine optimal population and generation counts.
