New Interface to IB Allows Orders Realtime from Indicators

Hi,
I found this DLL for IB which allows sending RT to IB.
In theory I should be able to send a order from a Indicator and not have to wait for a bar to close in a signal.

Backtesting

BackTesting

Hi,
I just downloaded the latest beta version 1.90.585.638 and I can't seem to figure out how to create a signal and get it to show me the results of bacttesting. Is there any help files available to show how this works ?

Easy Language Editor

Is anyone else having issues with the Power Language Editor shutting down by itself ? I have seen this many times in the latest version running on Windows XP or Win 2K. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
