I would like to get this to work.
The TWSStart intallation instructions says "no installation required" but after downloading the zip nothing happened. Upon opening the zip I see TWSStart.exe and TWSStart.jar. Do I open or run one of these (or both)?
The support tab on the TWSStart homepage gives "error 404".

TWS Auto logoff #%x*&*^(

i downloaded ibcontroller 2.9.. unzipped and clicked on the jar file, and nothing happened.
it seemed like that is what the instructions in the readme said to do.
anyone suggest what to do to bring it up ?

Try using ib gateway instead, if you have another trading platform like Ninja or Sierra. I don't even load TWS at all (thankfully). IB Gateway has no forced log off problem.


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.

I found this as the best description of how to set it up. It worked for me:
