Installation Notes

  1. Upgrades
    1. If upgrading from a 7.8.x Order Routing FIX Adapter to a 7.17.x FIX Adapter version with more than one FIX client user that is configured with a Synthetic SE gateway login, all previously submitted staged orders must be deleted and each FIX client user must be configured with the same direct trader Synthetic SE gateway login prior to upgrading. Additionally, each X_TRADERĀ® user that shares the order book with those FIX client users must be configured with the same direct trader Synthetic SE gateway login.

    2. Upgrades from pre-7.8.x versions of FIX Adapter must take place over a weekend and sessions must be reset prior to the first startup after the upgrade. Historical fills from before the upgrade will be unavailable.

    3. If your current FIX Adapter is 32-bit running on a 64-bit operating system and you would like to upgrade to the 64-bit FIX Adapter, you must uninstall your existing version and perform a clean install of the 64-bit version.

    4. Customers should contact their Technical Account Manager for data migration assistance prior to upgrading from FIX Adapter versions prior to 7.6.0.

All profile message, rules, tag rules and symbol mappings will continue to function as previously. (Ref 233004)

  2. Configuration
    1. The Flexible FIX DLL has increased the polling interval for requesting Flexible FIX server profile changes from 5 to 30 seconds. (Ref 233010)
