Two QuoteManagers in newest release

Postby Tresor » 09 Aug 2010

Hi TSS,

A new MC release was made today (9th August 2010), i.e. Version: 6.01.3605.400

The problem is: there are two QuoteManagers on my desktop now:
- QuoteManager
- MultiCharts QuoteManager.

The data feed settings are duplicated, so my guess is that the old QM was not removed during the installation of the newest release.

Which QM is the good (new) one to use?

I right clicked both icons to read Properties - General:

- MC QM was created on 30 July
- QM was created on 9 August

So my guess is that it is safe to remove MultiCharts QuoteManager icon and leave only QuoteManager icon and manage data feeds from the latter :?:

Both MC QM and QM originate from the same exe file.

The icon you see on the desktop is a short cut to the program.

You can identify it as a short cut by the arrow at the bottom left corner of the icon.

You can delete the icon; it won't affect the program.

Yes, having checked both icons relate to the same exe file it is safe to delete one of them.

As a new build is released, it would be a great help to know what has changed.

Thank you,
Don

TJ,

Whats new does not show the difference between the first release of 6.0 and the now available 6.1. Therefore I can not zero in on those changes to either provide feedback or make use of a feature that has either been added or fixed.

Have a good day,
Don
