Problem of MQ5 on MacOS.
1) Downloading file will not pass the file integrety test.
2) Several tool buttons are missed after proceeding with install.
I suggest parallel desktop rather than wine. Are you going to develop a native Mac OS version of MQ5?
I have performed a successful install Oct 2014 (OSX 10.9.5). The steps have changed slightly, you don't need to install the 'X' drivers in advance or the character sets.

Email me if your stuck, happy to help.
I hope the New Year is treating you well.
Like everyone else here, I'm running MT4 on my Mac (765). I have a iMac is one of the most popular desktops in the world http://www.stuff.tv/desktops/top-ten, and plenty of other sources online state the same.
I'd like to download several free indicators <links removed by moderator>, but the download function, as you know, doesn't work for the Mac, and thats been the case for a long time. I haven't mentioned it before, as I just thought it'd be fixed in time. But years later, its still the case.
If you're unwilling to provide a proper MT4/MT5 version for the Mac desktop, can you at least please provide an alternative download for your Mac community that works without the need to open MT4/MT5, and works like a normal download you can find everywhere else online please?
Its funny, but if you a provided a proper MT4/MT5 version for the Mac desktop in the first place, you wouldn't have had this download issue to deal with either.
If you provide an alternative download for your Mac community, I as well as many others in the Mac community, will happily be also able to purchase indicators as well. Think of the extra revenue stream you'll create? Everyone is a winner.
Many thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
First of all, Its unacceptable that is not a MT5/MT4 Mac version. Can't believe it!!
Second, Is it possible to install the 64Bit Version of MT5 using PlayOnMac ?
