    Why does IB install its API on c:\jts ?

    Why don't they save it under c:\program files ?

    Maybe because it's easier to write c:\Jts on a Linux box, instead of a directory name with whitespaces.
    Or maybe because TWS was created 15 years ago, where the max size of a directory name was 11 chars :) .
