"I was on the phone with a friend who uses CQG and right after the Fed announcement, CQG was as much as 30 seconds behind DTN.IQ. Some quotes were off by as much as 15-18 cents. Your feed never missed a beat." - Comment from Roger
"I have been using IQFeed now for a few years in MultiCharts and I have zero complaints. Very, very rare to have any data hiccups or anything at all go wrong." - Comment from Public Forum

"IQ feed works very well, does not have all of the normal interruptions I have grown used to on *******" - Comment from Mark
"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam
"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email
"DTN feed was the only feed that consistently matched Bloomberg feed for BID/ASK data verification work these past years......DTN feed is a must for my supply & demand based trading using Cumulative Delta" - Comment from Public Forum Post

Hi

I am new to Developer . . . while reviewing the documentation I came across
sample code for VB that Microsoft's latest Visual Studio Community 2013 complained about.
See attached message.

Can we please have this documentation updated ?

Thank you in advance. .

IQFeed Developer 5.1.0.5 Setup gives this incomplete and confusing message . . .

Please have the message tell me what version is installed and whether it is older or newer.
Older ? Followup action etc.

I did install the latest Client 5.1.1.3 from July 2014 ?

Help :-)

Hello Manoa,

Thanks for the head's up on this. I apologize for the troubles. We have not made any protocol changes in awhile so these have gotten out of sync. We will look at this in the coming days.

As to the conversion message, once the upgrade process to VS 2013 is performed, older clients would no longer be able to open the solution file. Since we need to keep the solution files available to all users, we will probably not be able to change this, but I will discuss it with management nonetheless to be sure they are aware of your concerns. Maybe we can come up with a few different installer versions, but we'll see how goes.

Tim

Why not make both available, old and a more recent version not more than 3 yrs old ? why should developers to be held back by those who want to stay with very old software/maybe no one uses it . . . does not work in the real world :-)

See how many times customers download each and then make a decision to remove the clutter.

Ask Apple CEO Tim Cook . . how quickly Apple customers upgrade . . and why Microsoft is being dragged
down by support for legacy software . . . . Nadella is changing that.

Thank you.

I have escalated your request to our management team, and we will certainly take a look at that option, and others, in the next developer's release.

Thanks,
Tim
