I am having one small issue. IB Gateway isn't retaining my preferences, for example to bypass API order limits. So whenever I restart my PC (and thus, IB Gateway) and try to manage orders in Sierra, the order gets hung. Panicked a couple times before I remembered what was happening.

For some unknown reason the setting in IB Gateway isn't persisting after exiting the app.

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.

Maybe permissions changed on the file/folder not allowing it to write settings after the win upgrade? That's what I would check first.

It was a good idea, but the permissions are fine. This is also a clean install, not an upgrade.

I couldn't find the specific file that stored the actual IB Gateway config. There is an ini in c:\Jts called jts.ini but it's pretty limited.

 
Code
[IBGateway]
WriteDebug=false
TrustedIPs=127.0.0.1
MainWindow.Height=551
RemoteHostOrderRouting=gw1.ibllc.com
RemotePortOrderRouting=4000
ApiOnly=true
LocalServerPort=4000
MainWindow.Width=700
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


I want to change that option. If anyone could check their jts.ini file and see if they have a string that would align with bypassing limits for API orders and let me know I'd appreciate it.

My first line is "useRemoteSettings=true" which I think means it is storing all settings like this on their end. Maybe you have that, and if so, can guide where you look next.

Can you clarify if it is literally line 1, or if you mean under the [IBGateway] header. I'll try it.

I don't use the gateway so that doesn't apply, but starting with line 1:

[Logon]
useRemoteSettings=true
...

I found the solution, this wasn't it but thanks.

Normally IB Gateway loads on startup on my machine. Then I shut down Windows for whatever reason, install updates, etc, and Windows is what closes IB Gateway.

Turns out, it doesn't close it "properly". I manually did a "File - Close" in IB Gateway and confirmed it now saved the settings.

I can confirm that right out of the box, Windows 10 was perfect. I didn't even reboot after the initial installation until a few minutes ago. It installed all my display drivers, did all the updates, and allowed me to install Java, IB TWS/Gateway, Sierra, and some other key apps without any issues. I did install the "new spreadsheets" version which I believe is .NET-less, so that may or may not have made a difference. But that's the same version I've been using for a year or more.

The most painful part of the entire process has just been in sitting up Office 2013 again, Outlook in particular. I hate more than anything in this world having to manage multiple IMAP/POP/Exchange mailboxes, but I've yet to find a viable replacement...

Mike


@Big Mike

It is called Thunderbird

From the moment I've installed it I no longer used or installed Outlook.
All emails and Thunderbird settings are stored in the profiles folder. Have a backup of that folder and you have everything you need if you're forced to reinstall everything again.

When I installled Windows 8.1 I did a fresh install (I hate upgrades) I installed Thunderbird, paste my Profile folder backup, opened Thunderbird and that was it, ready to rock and roll, no settings to be done.

Bye bye Outlook.

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

No... I used Thunderbird years ago. What I needed is a cloud based replacement. I ended up doing my own Roundcube installation and combining it with my existing IMAP server, and imapofflinesync to sync up Gmail and other third party accounts to my primary IMAP server.

The solution is fully HTML5 and supports Ctrl-V pasting of images into message bodies and drag-n-drop attachments, something which was a requirement for me. I have all my Sieve rules setup for sorting of incoming mail across multiple accounts to proper folders, highlighting of certain keywords/alerts, multiple personality sending support, calendar/to-do list, etc. Plus I own all of it on my own server so I control it.
