Will free TWS-Link be updated over time if it stops working?

Hello, Will TWS-Link Free (offline) FA version be updated over time if it stops working due to using it on Windows 11, Windows 12, Windows 13 x64, etc. in the future? What happens if TWS-Link stops working due to using it with new versions and builds of the TWS trading platform? What happens if TWS-...

How call Average Price of an Open Position in TWS-Link?

Hello, we would like to ask you how do we call the "Average Entry Price" of an open "position" (rather than an "order" that has been filled or partfilled) using the TWS-Link DLL? How would we code this? For example, in the screen-shot attached we want to get (call) the 131.148 average price value wh...

Re: Calling Get_Acc_Val & Get_Postions functions 50 times in a row caused my PC to overheat and shut down

Hello, thank you for you reply and advice. I want to set the log level to number 4 (which is log level "low"), how do I do this so that every time TWS_Link is launched (loaded) the log level remains "fixed" on number 4/low? Is there a place in an XML file (if so, what is the name of this XML file?) ...

Re: Calling Get_Acc_Val & Get_Postions functions 50 times in a row caused my PC to overheat and shut down

Hello, just in case I can help someone else, I thought I should report my final testing results and "past" problems re TWS-Link. I found that calling WAITDLL(5) many times in the TS script and trading with many scripts (trading 23 markets/charts) causes TS to lock-up/freeze/become non-responsive. Al...

Re: Calling Get_Acc_Val & Get_Postions functions 50 times in a row caused my PC to overheat and shut down

Hello, what you said in your previous post makes sense. In my tests when I call WAITDLL(1) in between calling Get_Acc_Val function (50 times in a row i.e. sub-account 1-50) TS locks up only "a little bit", but if I use WAITDLL (999) in between calling functions TS locks up "completely". You are righ...

Re: Calling Get_Acc_Val & Get_Postions functions 50 times in a row caused my PC to overheat and shut down

Hello, I was able to isolate the problem which caused TradeStation to lock-up and PC overheat and shut-down. It was due to using a 999ms sleep in between calling GET_POSITION function 50 times in a row, if I remove the WAITDLL(999); lines in between function calls TradeStation does not lock up and e...

Hello, in TradeStation script I called GET_ACC_VAL and GET_POSITIONS TWS-Link functions 50 times in a row (at once) with only 1ms sleep in between each function call and this caused my CPU to run at near 100% all the time as I have 23 scripts all running at once, and this then (for the first time ev...

Thanks for such a quick response and help.

Your solution worked very well. I can now use IB FA accounts and allocate trades based on "account groups" and also via "allocation profile" (both percentage and ratio methods). I must say your software is brilliant and works very well. Thanks again for your help. Kind regards, Rod.
