Installing the TT Gateway Software via the GUI interface


Depending on the environment of the machine on which you install the TT Gateway, you may receive several informative or question prompt boxes. If a task discusses such a prompt box, and you do not receive the prompt box, skip to the next step.

Installing the TT Gateway Software via the GUI Interface

To install the MEFF Gateway via the GUI interface:

  1. Run the MEFF Gateway setup.
  2. The License Agreement dialog box displays:

  3. Read the End User License Agreement.
  4. To accept the license agreement and continue with the installation, select the box next to I accept the terms in the license agreement.
  5. Click Next.
  6. The Browse for aconfig.xml dialog box appears.

    • If this is the first TT product on your TT Trading System, continue with this step.
    • If you provide an aconfig.xml file, skip to this step.
  7. Click Next.

    A Continue Without Providing File prompt appears asking you whether you want to continue.

  8. Click Yes, and continue with this step.

    Your MEFF Gateway installs with its own aconfig.xml. For information on how the TT system replicates aconfig.xml across your TT system, refer to the TT Gateway Architecture SAM Version 7.X.

  9. You must supply the aconfig.xml that you use on your TT Trading System so that the install package updates it with new TT Gateway exchange names.
    • Click Browse.
    • Navigate to the location of your aconfig.xml file.
    • Double-click the file, and then click Next.
  10. The Available Exchange Names dialog box displays with a list of MEFF exchange-flavors.

    Click the exchange-flavor that you want your TT Gateway to display in Guardian. To trade on the TT Gateway, traders must log into this TT Gateway exchange-flavor.

  11. Click Next.
  12. The InstallShield Wizard Completed dialog box appears.

    • To complete the installation and reboot your machine, click Reboot Now.
    • To exit the installer and reboot your machine later, click Reboot Later.

    TT recommends rebooting your machine prior to operating the MEFF Gateway.
