RightEdge + Historical Data

    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.interactivebrokers.com/en/p.php?f=programInterface&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.

    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.
