thread. I am wondering if that has changed since I am having no success either.

First, the WL8 install doesn't contain a backtest.dll which used to contain the implementation of UserStrategyBase. Is UserStrategyBase still the base class C# Code-Based Strategies?

What is the target framework for WL8, is it 4.6.1?

VS 2019 under Windows 10, after creating a simple Class Library targeting x64 with no WL assembly references gives me the following error when i just try to see if it will run WL8 from the debugger.


Please advise, thanks.

You have to install Visual Studio Community 2022 to develop extensions for WL8. The target framework is "NET 6.0", not 4.x (which was suitable for NET4-based WL6 - not even WL7 which is built on NET Core 3.1).

Here's our Extension Demo project for Wealth-Lab 8 and VS 2022 which you can clone on GitHub: https://github.com/LucidDion/WL8ExtensionDemos

P.S. Please use PNG as JPG is suboptimal for screenshots.
