Any progress on that?
I'm preparing our strategy to switch from backtesting to live trading.
Bars preloading is a big point and I don't see how we will cover that yet as we want to trade with Integral or Currenex, which don't offer historical data.
I have an IB personal account which I can connect to and monitor live quotes but GetHistoricalBars don't seem to work. We need about 15 days worth of hourly data to be ready to trade.

Any advice is welcome.

Are you able to download historical data from IB via UI wizard? (Data->Import->Historical)

It works fine now and I shared my experience with the community here:
