I stumbled across this old thread. I just wanted to give a "+1" for TWSStart, in case anyone else does the same.

I've been running an autotrading strategy with MultiCharts for a month, and TWSStart has been great at keeping TWS up and running. It's a one-trick pony -- if TWS shuts down, it restarts TWS and logs you back in automatically.

I had one hiccup with installation, and I emailed the developer. He was very friendly and even issued a patch within a day due to an unusual problem that I was having -- that's amazing support for a freeware/donation-ware program. Since that time, it's worked flawlessly. (He got a modest donation from me -- well worth it, in my opinion.)

Totaly agree,

Same for me.
I also had a little glitch when IB changed TWS version and the developper did resolve the problem quickly. I had also given a donation He wrote me that I was the first of the year at that time.

Happy trading day

TWS start nice

Thanks for mentioning Alt SDH 1, that seems to have fixed the restart problem for me.

Another question .. how do i get NinjaTrader to restart now? When IB/TWS closes, i get a message from Ninja that we lost connection, but don't see any way to restart it.
