The IBData2 has been discontinued in 2008 (I think). There are no publicly available broker providers to connect Wealth-Lab 6 to Interactive Brokers.

Re: "after I bought WLD". Sorry, I don't recall your purchase order?

Please search the forums, this question has been already answered before.

There's no off-the-shelf solution, but the ability is limited only by your skills as a developer. It can be as simple as emailing Alerts from Strategy, or as our FAQ suggests, you can reach full integration with your broker by developing a broker provider: I would like to create a broker adapter for Wealth-Lab Developer 6.

Recently, a 3rd party has created a solution for getting static/streaming data and trading with IB using WL Developer 6 (not Wealth-Lab Pro):
