Hello
I installed WL, and tried to get historical quotes from IQFeed
I went here to get extension for IQFeed provider
The download button gave me this message : "You don´t have permission to download this Extension"
Is it because my WL is in evaluation period
Is there a way to try IQFeed with WL ?
Is there a way to get data with 1mn resolution in evaluation period and how ?
Regards

Hi Eric,

Welcome to the forum.

Your understanding is correct: Wealth-Lab Extensions cannot be downloaded by trial users. On our position regarding extension downloads by trial users, please see this FAQ:

FAQ | Miscellaneous, Extensions > "I can't download an Extension: the site says Wealth-Lab extensions are available only to Wealth-Lab Version 6 customers".

Perhaps by exporting the data from IQFeed to a CSV file somehow and then importing it into Wealth-Lab with the help of the ASCII provider. But as we suggested earlier in email, it's hardly realistic to expect to run a simulation (let alone live trading) with your criteria i.e. the entire Naz/NYSE universe at 1-minute frequency.
