Hi,

Is it possible to start the IQConnect.exe with a product ID that I got for my API but with the different user of the iqfeed?
What I want to do is develop an application that will automatically start the IQFeed using the API and then let other people, subscribers only to the market data, to use it.

Thank you,
Adrian

Yes, that is perfectly fine, just compile your product ID into the code so it is not in the clear. If you were looking to do an open source app, that is when you would want to remove your ID before publishing it.

Thank you for the quick response.
I removed the ID but when I start the IQConnect.exe I get a message saying 'Awaiting product ID and version'.
Do I need to do something else?

Thank you.

For an open source project it won't work, nor do I think you want it to. If your product ID was used by someone else to do something not in line with the terms of service, it could result in the product ID being deactivated which would impact all of your potential users.

In the case of an open source project, you would want other potential users to have their own product ids. There are several of these projects online currently and to my knowledge they all require a product ID to be entered by the end user before they will function.

I understand, and you are right.
I will compile my product ID into the application and let the users enter their own login and password for market data feed.
Since I don't have a second login, I wanted to make sure that my application will work for different users.

Thank you.
