If it is found that there are any recurring problems requiring support, these will be listed below along with a solution.

If you have a problem with xlq, verify first that you are using the latest version. Only the latest version of xlq can be supported, and prior versions cannot be guaranteed to continue to work as expected due to changes in the market, data sources, network and IP address changes etc. If you encounter a problem or have found a bug, or would like to see a feature in a new version please let me know. 

Which version of xlq should I install?

Starting with version 4.8, there are now 3 different downloads available for xlq:

  • XP Version: This version (32 bit only) should only be used if you are using window XP. It has the same functionality as the other versions, but is built without using features found in more recent versions of windows and  also uses older functions no longer found in more recent windows versions.
  • 32 bit version: This version should be installed on 32 bit versions of windows (Vista and later), or on 64 bit versions of windows that are using a 32 bit version of excel.
  • 64 bit version: This version should be installed on 64 bit versions of windows if you are running a 64 bit version of excel.
  • For advanced users, it is possible to install both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of xlq on a 64 bit version of windows, allowing you to run one or the other, but not at the same time. It is best to choose based upon the version of excel you are using. A 64 bit version of excel will connect with the 64 bit data engine, and 32 bit excel with the 32 bit data engine. Only one version of the engine can be running at the same time, i.e. if excel 64 bit tries to connect with xlq and the 32 bit engine is running, it will wait until the 32 bit is closed and then start the 64 bit. Some users have reported noticeable improvements with excel 64 bit connecting with the 64 bit engine, but there would be no gains made using for example a 32 bit excel with a 64 bit engine.
  • If moving from a 32 bit version to 64 bit (and vice verse), it is recommended to uninstall first to avoid duplicate installations.
XLQ cannot run on Windows RT or a windows 8 phone. Excel available on these platforms cannot work with addins or custom formulae.
XLQ cannot run on an ipad. To use xlq on a tablet it would need to support a full version of windows such as the Microsoft Surface Pro.
XLQ cannot run natively on Apple OS X. To use xlq on a Mac, you would need to install xlq on a windows platform, and run it via parallels (etc.), If used with Excel, a windows version of excel would also be needed.
For data access TDAmeritrade clients need a standard TDA account. ThinkOrSwim enabled accounts connect to a different platform for data and trade routing, and do not provide access to the same TDA data service. TDA has confirmed that it is possible to convert a standard account to a ToS account, but it is not possible to convert a ToS account to a standard account. Instead a new account would need to be created.
MSN no longer provide download data and has been removed since XLQ 5.2. If you are using a prior version you should remove any references to them as a source and remove any symbols listed under the MSN tabs in the stock manager.
XLQ 4.3 or later is required for compatibility with Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit) and Excel 2010 (32 bit). 
4.32 or later is required for Excel 2010 64 bit.
Excel 2007 - If you are using excel 2007 and can only see #xlq in the cells and you are using Norton Antivirus, you need to install Excel 2007 SP1 to solve the problem. Alternatively you could disable the Norton Antivirus office plug-in (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/329820/en-us).
XLQ 3.3 or later is required for compatibility with Vista and Office 2007.
XLQ will work with Microsoft Excel 97 and later. Earlier versions of Excel will not work.
Windows 95, 98, ME, NT and Windows 2000 are no longer supported. (xlq uses supporting libraries and windows functionality that is not available in them)
If you are using Microsoft Excel 97 and it crashes, you need to update your version of Excel to Service Release 1. You may download this patch from Microsoft for free. For further information please check the FAQ by clicking here.
