If Microsoft Excel is not available on your computer at the time that you install TeleTrader WorkStation, the RTD component is not included with the installation. To add it to your computer at a later time, you have to download and install TeleTrader WorkStation RTD on your computer before you can use RTD links. Before you start the installation, make sure that your computer meets the system requirements.
After the installation is finished, TeleTrader WorkStation RTD is started automatically in the background as needed. You can stop the connection manually when you don't need it anymore.
It is also recommended that you choose a proper time zone for all time stamps that are received via TeleTrader WorkStation RTD. By default, the time zone is set to Local Time.
