TT Technical Account Managers (TAMs) will be responsible for installing and configuring Synthetic SE, as it will not be available for download on the Customer Portal.

Dynamic connections are enabled by default. Before upgrading, please contact your TT Technical Account Managers for assistance in assessing your environment.

Synthetic Order Persistence

If you are upgrading to this version from Synthetic SE 7.2.x or 7.3.2 or higher, all synthetic orders will be resumed after Synthetic SE is restarted.

If you are upgrading to this version from Synthetic SE 7.3.0 or 7.3.1, you must:
  • Delete all synthetic orders.
  • Delete all Synthetic SE order persistence files (root:\tt\datfiles\SSE_Persistence_*).
To confirm that all synthetic orders have been deleted prior to upgrading from Synthetic SE 7.3.x, you should:
  1. Create a list of all TT Gateways to which the Synthetic SE is configured to connect.
  2. Create a Universal Login ID that is mapped to all of the TT Gateways in this list and the Synthetic SE with administrative credentials that have the ability to view the orders and fills of all traders that use the Synthetic SE (such as TTADM/XXX/VIEW). Alternatively, you could use an existing user ID if one that meets the these criteria already exists.
  3. Login to X_TRADER® Pro using this user ID.
  4. Open the X_TRADER® Orders and Fills Window and select the View Working button in the upper right-hand corner.
  5. Any orders that have Link Type value of SSE must be deleted before proceeding with the upgrade.
X_TRADER Version

At least X_TRADER® 7.11.4 is required to use this version of Synthetic SE.

Upgrading to 64-bit

The System Administration Manual details specific procedures for upgrading to 64-bit which should be referenced before installing this version.
