So, here’s a little info on what I tried last night/this morning.
Amibroker 6.20.1 64 bit professional version (registered) runs GREAT under WINE. All functions that I tried (charting, exploration) worked fine in the native AB program. It even was able to update the US symbol list and categories. I am just using the default ‘data’ database in AB that comes with the install package.
Where I ran into problems was Amiquote 3.27 (registered). It installs, registers, but when I try to import the Ticker list from Amibroker, it gives me an OLE error. Repeats the OLE error, and then suggests to uncheck the automatic import box. Doing so gives no joy.
I’m going to play around with the AQ install because it might have been an error on my part, see if other combinations of settings makes a difference as it just doesn’t seem to be ‘seeing’ the database.
@beppe I appreciate your comments, but imho running DL under Anaconda is tricky sometimes and running it under docker (at least last I tried) was impossible. GPU accellerating is painful under both. I do have colleagues who have done it, but from my viewpoint the linux install is just so much easier and more reliable to execute. I would just like to run it this way.
Obviously, I am doing something completely unsupported here and I know I am on my own. Just reaching out to see if anyone smarter did it first.
