IB and IBController (suppress daily-logoff)

Hi,

Broker: Interactive Brokers.
TWS will log off automatically once a day.

Until now I could prevent that (with IBContoller).

But since the last Update of TWS (903.7) IBController doesnt work.

Anyone an idea? The automatic logout sabotages my tick-recordings.

Thank you!

I have been using workspace macro to change the time each day, I did not know there was such a thing as IBController. Will download, thanks. I am assuming they will eventually upgrade the IBController, if not and you need features in the new version of TWS, then you might try a macro program, it does the job and also makes loading strategies much faster and easier, otherwise I am just planning to stick with the old version.

@vega: I hope this macro recorder is very reliable, or that you using it with your paper account, that looks a bit dangerous

@Henrik: IB have a lot of good things, I'm with them for years now, but IB datafeed, time based or ticks (which are badly aggregated ticks, 4 snapshots/seconds, no more...) is really not the first choice...

Whats the alternative (Spot FX)?
Only MB.
But MB have bad bugs with NT (crashed if a strategy manage a position over the rollovertimes, with NT6.5 and also NT7beta).

The name of the another tool: TWSStart_2_4.

But I'm not sure if this works for the daily auto log out.

i have always found the auto log off to be a nuisnance. i am looking at twsstart and it looks like it just auto-logs it back on after log off? does it really just disable the auto log off feature? could you give details on how to configure twsstart to do this?
thanks
