Did not...

work. Exactly why I wish I could punch someone in the face. Here we go wldman jacking with his rig to get a piece of software to work. The more time I waste the madder I get.

Was there a list of instructions somewhere that I missed?

I called IB. I am supposed to enter KB2115 into the search engine on their web site. So, for the record. IB does not take incoming customer service calls. NT does not take incoming customer service calls...and a GD moron (that'd be me) is now jacking with both software and hardware...this is not going to end in Kumbaya. Some poor bastard won't even see me coming.

Okay okay...

I get to the first GD instruction and I already want someone in pain...not dead, yet.

"Since the TWS is a Java based application, in order to be able to install and run the TWS Standalone on a 32 bit windows system, you need to have the 32 bit JRE (Java Runtime Environment) installed. If you have a 64-bit system, you would need both 64-bit and 32-bit JRE (Java Runtime Environment) installed."

Wow That's Fabulous! (WTF)

Java to me is

1) a geographic location or part of our evolutionary history where the huminoid Java Man and Peking Man left their remains for us to discover.

2) a term used to describe "coffee"

64 bit 32 bit Wow That's Fabulous...to me a bit is something you put in a horses mouth so you can lead them around without trouble.

So here we go...do I click the GD JAVA thing of effing guess that proceed is the right thing to do.

I may get on the EL and go to IB's office here and leave a huge pile of turd in front of their reception desk. I can fashion a little sign to a toothpick. Saying if you need a punch in the face...or if a kick in the balls is better.

Okay...


944.3 is visible on my screen. It does not look like it did this morning but I can figure that out...maybe.

So will it integrate with NT all by itself?

Will it send orders and receive fills?

Lets see.

Damn...

I know my shit when it comes to this software stuff!

Lets see if it sends orders and receives fills. Is anyone .3840 offer 6E?

There seems to be an issue...we have a failure to communicate.

@wldman

What I do not understand, why are you today switching to a newer TWS?

Wait until @NinjaTrader releases the update for NT7 and the TWS version. You will have less problem with a tested version.

UPDATE:

I've just downloaded the latest TWS version 944.3 of April 24th that I see on their website - MAC OS X - and installed it in my virtual machine. It is connecting fine with NT7 running on the other Win7 virtual machine: it receives the pending orders, positions, account info, etc...

I will still have to test it next week when market opens of course, and see how it reacts placing and cancelling orders, and getting filled intraday, etc...

But I really do not expect problems; it has been that way for every new version of TWS that I load with my current setup despite the fact that NT doesn't officially support their newer releases.

UPDATE 2:
My system is working perfectly, didn't even feel that I had switched to a newer version throughout the entire trading session today.All orders, modifications, positions transmitted properly; got even level 1 and level 2 feeding in correctly to NT7 (just for a test). I don't have any issue to report.

Successful people will do what unsuccessful people won't or can't do!
