Speaking of that, only vendors should be allowed to remotely *shutdown* studies; I don't think free DLL's should qualify. If you're worried about users running your studies with out-of-date versions of SC, couldn't you insert a terminator code subroutine, calling out to an external web API to return a list of deprecated SC versions and give the user an on-screen message alerting to upgrade SC? Or if that's too hard, isn't it possible to ask people to *subscribe* to an SC-indicator-upgrade thread to get email alerts whenever you post an "upgrade now please" alert?

I agree .... but this is too complicated process ... maybe it's solvable but I don't know how. I create these studies in my free time, I do programming from a completely different area, but also C ++. I don't want to create another interface and complicate it to me.

I don't know if you know:
ad 1)
"I'd feel much safer if you posted your DLL's to the Sierra forum"
thanks to the account name I can send the library directly to the user every time I upgrade, standardly I don't do it - only at the user's request ....
But it is only a matter of agreement, just ask and I have no reason don't satisfy this request.

For example, there was a big problem last time, with "Transact users". If I did that by sending them updates directly to the their PC they are all without my studies because the last functional version of SCH for them was 1941. A compiled library under 1979 wouldn't work for them.

ad 2) Account name is the only way to protect the library from uncontrolled distribution everywhere. I will be happy if Sierra makes Accountname2 which will not serve as a login but will function as a unique ID as Account name1. Then this whole discussion of abuse your account would be pointless.

Suggest it to them. I'll vote immediately for this too.

 I'd love to see 200, 300, or 400 new threads here discussing ACSIL or spreadsheet studies (granted by "basic and simple" but growing community). It would also grow your business and people would love you for really sharing. You can also apply to the Sierra Chart vendor.

Not about it. Rather 200,300,400 threads about how to improve the study, change it, or suggest how to use it .... but it's still about the study I created. Why should it spam a forum that has xy thousand people when only a few people use this study It's a normal filter.

Sierrachart forum should be mainly technical and especially support forum for their excellent product, when there will be a lot of spam, so if someone has a real problem, they will wait very long for a reply. Threads should be like: "DOM doesn't work or my chartbook freezes". Really ... here is a support forum.
