e) Open the License manager from: C:\BTWFMgr\BTWFReg.exe

Note: The TradeStation performance might in some cases be slightly different than the BTWFMgr performance
because trades which enter and exit in the SAME BAR are not registered in BTWFMgr.
The BTWFMgr performance for stocks is usually based on the fixed Trading Amount defined in:
"StockTradeAmount" = 100,000$ (StockTradeAmount/Initial Data Conversion)
To use the actual Stock Trading size from the TradeStation strategy set
StockUseTrdAmt=YES in the BTWFMgr Configuration/Initial Data Conversion.
The Profit/Loss is reduced by the commission (includes slippage) for the in and out trade:
PL=$100, Commission+Clippage=5$, Net PL=$90 ($100 - 2x$5)
