System requirements and 3 simple steps to successfully install the platform

Once you downloaded 3rd Dimension application from 3rd Dimension official website — you are ready to start an installation process. From this point we must clarify the main differences between 3rd Dimension "installation process" and default Windows® install process, that most users are accustomed to.

3rd Dimension does not copy it's files to the system folders (AppData or Program Files) of the OS, nor does write changes to the system registry

What does it mean? The program doesn't violate the integrity of the OS, and in case of removal, it will not leave any prints of its presence on your computer. 3rd Dimension's "installer" literally extracts files to the user-specified folder.

This approach allows you to store (and launch) the 3rd Dimension on removable drive for use on any other computer as the portable application. It can be convenient when you need to move 3rd Dimension with all of its settings to another PC; just copy 3rd Dimension folder and paste where you need.

PC requirements

  • Windows 7, 8.1, 10

  • .NET Framework v.4.7

  • Available disk space — 1 GB (depends on the volume of loaded history)

Microsoft has officially stopped supporting Windows 8. Therefore, when you purchase a license, you will not be able to log in to the application under your account. In the free version, all available functionality of the platform will work properly. We recommend updating Windows to version 10.

Installation steps

3rd Dimension installer screen

  1. Download the app installer and launch the 3rd_Dimension.exe file

  2. Select the folder to extract application files

  3. Once an extraction process being finished the platform will start automatically with Emulator connection enabled and the default workspace

Please note, that you may need to allow an in-going and outgoing connection for Starter.exe file (the main executable of 3rd Dimension terminal) in your Firewall settings

From this moment you can start trading and analysis as well as workspace customization


If you need to uninstall the application, just delete the folder with all application files. You may also keep your personal settings (connection information & workspaces) by copying the Settings folder (can be found right in 3rd Dimension folder) before application delete. These Settings folder can be pasted to any other 3rd Dimension folder later.

You may also refer to Backup & Restore manager to backup your settings in one file and restore them later.
