Re: Multicharts with Esignal broken [SOLVED]

FIXED. Thanks again Henry and noodlesong.

I want to turn my av back on as soon as possible. Which MC process should I exclude from the MSSE realtime monitoring? Perhaps start with tsServer?

Re: Multicharts with Esignal broken [SOLVED]

Disabling Microsoft Security Essentials (the only anti-virus I have) did the trick for me. Which processes should I exclude to prevent this from happening again?
I'll give that a try. Gracias.

Re: Multicharts with Esignal broken [SOLVED]

So something is going off the rails between the Advise event and the Request event in the MC code that interfaces with the eSignal DM minute server, but I don't know which side is causing the problem.

Re: Multicharts with Esignal broken [SOLVED]

I have an old version 6 beta for MC on an old workstation running against the old eSignal DM. This one is running ok. Here's what the QM event log shows for successful minute server requests: [02/19/2014 13:54:35] Advise Transaction 700 Minute 6E #F 19.02.14 17:08:00 - 19.02.14 19:00:00 [02/19/2014 ...

Re: Multicharts with Esignal broken [SOLVED]

I had eSignal reset my entitlements but I'm still down. The real hangup appears to be the interface with the minute server.

Multicharts 64 bit with Esignal

I'm running MC 32 bit with Esignal 10 32 bit on a 64 bit machine. As I recall, Esignal did not support third party access to the Esignal 11 64 bit data feed a couple of years ago when Esignal 11 was new. Has that changed? Can I run MC 64 bit against the Esignal 11 64 bit data feed now?

Re: Scanner Indicator Values Do Not Match Chart Indicator Va

I should mention that the "Last" field values in the scanner DO match the "Last" field values presented on the chart on a real time basis. So I seem to be dialed into the same data series on both sides.

I am observing the same TWS behavior when connecting Esignal to TWS. So I believe there is merit to the notion that this is a TWS issue rather than a Multicharts issue.
