    IQ feed connect to NT7

    Hi I am trying to connect IQ feed to my NT7 version 7.0 1000.35 to get data into some legacy indicators I have on that setup which was not migrated to NT8

    I set up the connection but on trying to connect I get the message:

    "Login failed. Unable to start IQConnect process IQConnect.exe The system cannot find the file specified"

    Please tell what I need to do.

    thanks

    Hello suraj,

    Thank you for your message.


    I see that you're running an older version of NinjaTrader 7. The newer version contains many critical updates to the database. Please update NinjaTrader 7 and reset your instruments:

    First, to update NinjaTrader, please follow the steps below:
    • First, get your license key from NinjaTrader under Help> License Key then exit NinjaTrader
    • Click on the link: https://ninjatrader.com/PlatformDirect
    • Enter your license key and press Submit
    • Under 'Prior Releases' select the version next to 'NinjaTrader 7' to begin your download.
    • Before running the installer, ensure that NinjaTrader is closed.
    Lastly, to reset your instruments, please follow the steps below:
    • Disconnect from your data feed: NinjaTrader Control Center> File> Disconnect> Select your data feed
    • Reset your Instruments: NinjaTrader Control Center> Tools> Options> Data tab> Reset Instruments>OK
    • Restart NinjaTrader> Connect (NinjaTrader Control Center> File> Connect> Select your connection

    After you have updated, please also ensure that you are using the correct version of IQFeed's software for connecting to NinjaTrader 7 as other versions will not work correctly. You may download this version from our IQFeed Connection Guide here.


    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

      Hi Justin,

      thanks for the info.

      The legacy indicators that I have do not work for later versions of NT7 - but just to test I downloaded the IQ connection program per your link and installed it.

      On restarting NT7 and setting up the IQFeed cnnection it worked with the version of NT7 I have installed here. I can see data and charts are populating which will allow me to test the indicators.

      Once in a while I do see a popup which says invalid server response but still charts are still functioning after 15 minutes.
