I would like to know, can I run multiple Amibroker on the same database? say I have four strategies, and I have a database with 10 years data of the symbol "GC", then I open four Amibroker.exe in the same time, pointing them onto the same database, and do the optimization on each of the four strategies on each Amibroker?
Sorry for my bad english, hope I explain my question clearly.
I can also agree with you. By accident, I discovered that if I copied a Metastock plug-in database to another computer on the network and bulk text edited the paths in the ms.config file, what ends up happening is just this! So what happens is that just the data reference is over the network, not all the other database settings, like layouts et al.
So it would be very cool if you could set a setting in Database settings for the following...
path to the data. In the database folder (default) or somewhere else.
Which AD instance can update (Write) to the data (aka the AB instance running the quote feed) and all other machines can only read (read only) the data.
Whether all other settings are writable local db location or remote db location.
