FYI - there is a change as of today.

Yesterday, you could have run TWS from the 'previous version' page on IBs website. Today you can't because IB released a new version.

You need to have TWS installed on your machine.

The install is here:

http://www.ninjatrader.com/ninjatrader/TWS/tws40_install_917_8.exe

You'll need to remove any installs of TWS before you do this.

If that doesn't do it & you are on V7 r4 or above - then I have no clue....


The version of TWS i'm running is newer than that one. I am trading stocks and so the FA bug should have no effect on me from what i've read.

"I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

918 isn't supported.

You'll have to install 917_8 with the link I gave. It'll solve the problem.

oooooooooh!!!!!

that could very well be it!

Geeesh....let me try that asap and I'll repost as soon as I know!

TWS seems to be stable now...unfortunately I get the following error message when I try to connect to IB

Login failed: IB adapter.MessageLoop No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

You created four threads for the same topic. Please be more careful. It had to do with the way you were editing your first post, you kept submitting new threads.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

This is likely an account configuration issue. I suggest (if not done so already) contact our support team for quick resolution.

Ok sorry Mike, I didn't realize I was doing that. I was editing my posts after I thought of additional things to add and then I hit whatever button submits the post...but i didn't realize it was creating new threads. I guess i'm not too clear on how that works. I'll look into it and be more careful

I just edited this post as a test...and then hit save....thats all there is to it I suppose...I wonder what i was doing to make additional threads? hmmmm I'm confused about that.

Ok i'm an idiot! When I reinstalled the correct version of TWS, I forgot to go back and configure it
specifically it was the "enable ActiveX and Socket Clients" that was not checked"

thanks for everyone who took an interest in helping.

Bottom line was I was using the unsupported version of TWS. Had I read more carefully in the beginning, I could have resolved it myself. Then I neglected to start from step one again after re installing the correct version.

Impatience does one no good...in installing software or in trading.

Lesson Learned - I hope
