Difference between local and VM installation

Some differences remain on re-installation. I need some assistance determining what still isn't there?

Here is what it looks like on the VM

Here is what it looks like on my local Desktop

What files are missing?

From the messages on the screen, it appears that you are not connecting to Interactive Brokers via TWS and IBController. I would suggest reviewing the instructions here: https://www.amibroker.com/at/. There are also lots of references to IB Controller here on the forum.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for chiming in here.

It looks like BrokerIB.exe is in there in the Amibroker folder and is the most current version.

Make sure you follow the configuration instructions here: https://www.amibroker.com/guide/h_ib.html

... and verify that you set the TWS Socket Port correctly. It will be different for paper trading and live trading. I haven't done it for awhile, but my recollection is that you can see the socket port in TWS itself.

Yeah, the socket port is 7496 for live trading and 7497 for paper money.

I think that I have that configured correctly because I was able to run a successful backtest on SPY option back-fills today but when I tried a new symbol, it failed.
