I have 2 CDS accounts with Asia Securities & Capital Trust. They both give Direct fn TWS. But when I try to install the Direct fn TWS from the 2nd broker, it says I have already installed Direct fn. I try renaming the existing installed folder but get the same error message.

Is there any way for me to install 2 instances of Direct fn TWS for 2 different brokers?

Please help

Asia securities offer Direct FN DT
and
Capital Trust offer Direct FN TWS

I would really suggest you to use CDAX from A/S and DirectFN from C/T..I am using both DT and TWS but not in the same PC never tried.

I'm agree with you dinusl. I'm also suggesting you to use Cdax from Asia and DirectFN TWS from Capital trust. Bcoz i tried to install both in a same PC but it's helpless.

Happy Trading friends.

OK found a solution.
Just copy your installed Direct FN TWS folder to another Drive (like from c: to D:)

Then install Direct FN TWS from the second broker & say yes to uninstall the existing version when asked. Now you have Direct FN TWS installed for the second broker.

Next goto your previous copied Direct FN TWS folder from your 1st broker & put a shortcut in your desktop pointing to DirectFN TWS.exe in that copied folder.

This way when you click the DirectFN TWS icon in your desktop, you can connect to the 2nd broker & when you click the newly created DirectFN TWS icon to connect to the 2nd broker.

With the new DirectFN TWS version, you can install from 2 brokers at the same time as well as run both 2 at the same time.
