On API and TWS updates

IB is always updating their TWS or API, which is both a good thing and a bad thing. The good part is that bugs will be fixed, new features will be added and functions will be more streamlined. The bad thing is that since we are used to the “bugs” or idiosyncrasies in the old versions and have workarounds for them, any updates will break the current versions. The latest, most noticeable change (since API 9.69) is that the API is now installed using an msi file into a separate “TWS API” folder, not under the old c:/jts folder. A lot of time and effort has to be spent to keep up with IB’s updates so we can use the new “features” which are required for specific situations.
