As much of a rookie question as it may be, I'm trying to get live farm commodities data using gain capital. However, since I've previously only worked majorly with RESTful API / WebAPI and gainCaptial not support that. I'm confused on how to make what you guys are offering work.

Little run down of my project is, we're building a simulation app that lets the client keep track of the market. They are just going to get information enough to analyze it might be a good time to trade from how the market is moving. After that they are going to third-party app or website or whatever to make the trade.

That being said, I was just wondering if I would be able to get:
a. Live feed
b. Basic run down on how to use the .net app that you guys provide.
When I downloaded OEC API and ran it, it opened up the excel sheet and my VS and then in excel sheet when I tried to connect using my username and password it keeps saying "ActiveX component can't create objects".

Thanks you in advance for any help or tips.

We offer connectivity via FIX and .NET API. Both offer access to our price feed. We provide samples of both on our Bitbucket pages: https://bitbucket.org/GainFuturesDev/
