Q1. In OP I presume "Account" is the Nirvana account number

Q2. I notice there is no password field, which seems to defeat the purpose of running OP because when OT is started by OP then OT demands the GX Account number and password.
Therefore it seems to me that OP cannot be used to start OT unattended, because OT always has a popup which requires user interaction for user id and password.

I'm the first to admit that I've probably got all this wrong, please explain how I set OP and/or OT up so that OP starts OT unattended using GX as my broker?

That referenced "work around" no longer works properly. OT now prompts the user with an additional question before the logon prompt.

I believe the question that OT asks is "Are you sure that you want to connect to GX Trader?" It only asks the question if you were logged into GX Trader at the prior shutdown. One could probably code around it if knowledgeable enough. But the log-on should be seemless and supported.

I called Tech Support about the additional prompt around 6 months ago. They did not seem interested in addressing the problem.

Nathan, Thank you for trying to help, but I can confirm that the workaround you referenced no longer works properly for GX customers.

Matthew and Randy's files compile correctly and my GX customer number and password are saved correctly by modGXT.txt

But my OT 2014 doesn't get fully started in the 30 second time interval that OmniPilot and GXTrader_Login.vbs allows for entry of the GX customer number and password.

I don't even get to the question reported by hafnium "Are you sure that you want to connect to GX Trader?"

Perhaps the GXTrader_Login.vbs file could be updated, it would certainly make a big difference.

The fix for the waiting problem, go into the GXTrader_Login.vbs file and modify this line

WScript.Sleep 30000

This sets the 30 second delay. Change it something larger ie..

WScript.Sleep 60000 which should increase the delay to 60 seconds .
