If you have previously installed the simulator on your system and need to uninstall and reinstall, or need to update to the latest version, please follow the instructions below.
- First, make sure you turn off any antivirus software or firewall as it might prevent you from installing the software.
If needed, please write down your current Trader ID and password that you use to sign into the WT Sim platform.
Decide if you would like to preserve any custom layouts/hotkeys, or if you would like the system to overwrite them with the default layouts. If you would like to preserve your layouts and hotkeys, proceed to step 4 now and do NOT perform steps A through D below. If you would like the system to overwrite your previous files, please follow A through D below before continuing to step 4:
Open up Add/Remove Programs, and uninstall the Warrior Sim.
Then, open up your Files directory, locate your C: Drive > x86 Programs > Warrior and then delete the entire Warrior file.
Empty the Recycle Bin on your computer.
Restart your PC.

** MOST IMPORTANT PART**After the download completes, right click the install shield and click “Run as Administrator.” If you do not have the option to run as administrator, continue to follow the prompts from the Install Wizard.
Go through the installation process.
During the installation process, depending on how your computer is configured, you may encounter prompts from Windows. These may include User Account Control prompts asking "if you want to allow this program to make changes to the system" or from Windows Defender Firewall requesting permission to allow or deny the SIM to communicate on your network. In all cases you would want to Allow Access by clicking on the appropriate button in the window. If you deny access or click no the SIM may not install or function correctly
Once the installation is complete, double-click the shortcut on your desktop to launch the simulator.
Proceed to sign in with your prior simulator credentials when you are ready to use the platform.
If you have installed the platform with an incorrect Trader ID, you can find steps on this page here under "Fix Trader ID Instructions."
