Default NINJA DLL is NOT listening

Hello,
From a Visual C# app through NinjaTrader.Client.dll I have been able to subscribe to the market data and get the last price, but I cannot place orders because the dll is not listening: Connected() returns -1 and a Powershell check returns -1 too:
Quote:
PS C:\Users\sodif> Add-Type -path "c:\Program Files (x86)\NinjaTrader 8\bin64\NinjaTrader.Client.dll"
PS C:\Users\sodif> $atiTest = New-Object NinjaTrader.Client.Client
PS C:\Users\sodif> $atiTest.Connected(1)
-1.
ATI is enabled, port 36973, NT8 is connected to Continuum Demo data feed. How can I make it listen?
Thanks.

Hello Lucero,

There is not any documentation available for interfacing with the DLL's so this inquiry falls under the "unsupported" territory.

We will only be able to point you to information that exists on our Forums.

Here are a few links to some discussion threads that touch on this:

If you find a post or example of value, please be sure to thank the original poster.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

These threads are helpful, but I still cannot get the API working as it should. For instance, when I try this suggestion
Quote:
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.DllImport("C:\\Wind ows\\SysWOW64\\NtDirect.dll")]
public static extern int Connected(int showMessage);
, VS throws an error upon calling the Connected() method:
Quote:
Failed to initialize COM Library(0x80010106)
Any suggestions on how this could be fixed?

Hello Lucero,

As assistance with the API is unsupported and beyond the scope of services we provide for our clients, I will take a step back from this thread.

Hopefully other clients will be able to share their experiences with you and provide some direction.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading.

Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
