I tried to back test my system with Interactive Broker.

I get the following error when trying to update historical data:

Error retrieving bars:IB error/warning! id=0 200:No security definition has been found for the request

TWS is up and running. I also downloaded the API (http://individuals.interactivebroker...&ib_entity=llc).
In the TWS options (Configure->API) the following is checked "Enable ActiveX and Socket Clients".

Any ideas how to fix it? If it's not possible to fix, where else can I get historical data? I need at least the following futures: S&P, Wheat, Corn and Soybeans. More symbols to test would be better.

mbess,

Any luck with a solution?

I have the same problem and tried multiple combinations of the TWS client and RightEdge. I am also using the latest build of RE (build 44). Also updated all components, .NET & Java, to their latest versions.
