IB TWS and Vista 64bit

  1. Hi,

    Has anyone tried TWS on a 64bit version of Vista? In theory it should be fine as it runs on Java but it would be nice to hear from someone else who runs it successfully.

    Thanks.

    there are some annoyances with getting it to install correctly. Unfortunately I don't remember what they are.

    OK, I just updated TWS on my Vista 64 machine. The "annoyance" with the install, is that the shortcut points to the wrong place. You can change this manually, or just wait patiently for Windows to search for the correct path, and update it automatically the first time you click on the TWS desktop shortcut.
     
  5. Cool, good news. I'm going to enjoy having 8gigs of ram on this machine. Thanks guys.
