Check out the thread below. I had a similar problem and I found a solution. It may not work but it might be related.

Thanks for the feedback. I apologize for the terrible syntax in my previous post. I obviously didn't review it before I hit the button. Seriously, I am glad that it helped you despite my language problems.

Sorry for the delayed update but I wanted to make sure it worked before posting anything here that might help someone in the future.

The problem I had was related to the standard Wine packages that were available to the Ubuntu image that I was using on Amazon AWS. I has nothing to do with it being From AWS but rather the Wine version that was installed when I executed the apt-get install on the particular image. In addition, some wine packages were still present after uninstalling Wine. Therefore I did the following and it worked for me:

Run the following command in the terminal:

sudo apt-get purge wine* (caution - this will remove ALL Wine components)

Follow the instructions in the InstallingWineHQ Packages section of the link below:

Reinstall the latest release of the IQFeed software.

Good Luck!

I have worked on this all day and I think I may have discovered the issue. However, I want to make sure it works before I share the info.

The issue I see with the 5.2 install is that the install hangs for a long time at the point shown in the attached screenshot.

The line Executre: "vcredist_x86_2012u4.exe" /promptrestart /passive indicates that the IQFeed install routine is attempting to run the vcre install with some kind of silent or whatever option set. (I don't know enough about the command line options for the vcre install to accurately determine what the IQFeed install routine is attempting) However, it hangs there for 1+ minutes and then indicates that it has completed the install but I cannot tell if it is just timing out. I only suspect this being a problem because I do not get this issue outside of Wine.

I removed the 5.1.x artifacts and did a fresh install of the 5.2.x client. Following this install (and reboot to be safe) I am unable to launch any of the IQF applications despite other Wine applications running normally. This is why I have been using the 5.1.x client because I simply could not get the 5.2.x client to do anything. In fact, I cannot get it to create any DTN/IQFeed log files which leads me to guess the underlying vcre never installed properly. However, not having much time to diagnose the problem, I had to move on with the 5.1.x client in place.

I am attaching more files on subsequent replies.

I have been running IQFeed version 5.1.x.x on Amazon AWS/ Ubuntu 14.04 and Wine. (FYI - I was unable to install version 5.2.x.x due to the reboot flag at the end of the installation routine causing Ubuntu a problem.)

Everything works great for about 24 hours then I get a crash. I have tried to troubleshoot it to no avail. I have attached the crash dumps/logs with the hope you can see what I am missing.

Many Thanks,

Your check enabled me to find an upstream switch statement that I did not have falling-through properly.

Many Thanks!

I was trying to save you having to read a few lines. Attached contains the setDefaultFieldsProtocol5_1 method (which works) and the setDefaultFieldsProtocol5_2 method which does not work.

I cannot seem to find what is wrong with my field request string for Level1Fields under protocol 5.2. I know there is something I am missing but I can't find it. Can you please verify that this request string includes valid fields?

Many Thanks!

IQFeed Developer Support » Listed Market Open Close Times Available? Dec 17, 2015 09:03 AM (Total replies: 1)

I wanted to know if there is a lookup for market open-close for a listed market by date? Since I am creating my own aggregates based on quotes, I need to roll a quote forward in time if no new quote message has been received. However, I need to know at what point would a listed market be closed in total for that particular day.

I already perform the lookup/conversion for:




I looked at the market open flag but couldn't determine if that was in use and for what, if any sessions beyond the regular. I have done this kind of thing before using both manual and regular updates with other data feed providers. However, I wanted to see what, if anything, is available before I begin construction on this phase.

Many Thanks!

I was missing setting the protocol version on the various services. I was only setting it on the Admin service. I am going to prune the number of fields. I was just unable to see what they contained.

Many Thanks!

Please disregard this post. There was an issue with my API service not auto-renewing.

IQFeed Developer Support » Cannot Connect via API Dec 1, 2015 08:56 AM (Total replies: 1)

This morning I started receiving the following message when launching iqconnect.exe from my code (as I have done many times).

I can log-in outside of my code but not launch from within it.

Sorry, your Product and/or Service for the attempted login are incorrect. If you have recently changed products you may also need to change your type of service. Please contact DTN customer support for assistance. (1)

Output file in case it didn't get attached the first time.
