Please can you provide a MT5 installation tutorial for iMac, working in 2018/2019.
This one https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/619 is unfortunately outdated.
Many thanks guys,
Are you really not going to develop a Mac app? How about porting the iPad version to desktop via the new option in Xcode?
Really hoping you guys can pull it off!
Hi this was released today: https://www.winehq.org/announce/4.0.1
Rather pathetic i have to say
Part of my job is to market our training package which focuses only on the MT-5 platform to my clients and so many of them are on mac's. Yes i even
live in what is considered to be a 3rd world country (Imagine !!!). The workaround you guys give is so outdated that it doesn't even work with
c'mon people. What are we in the 15th century here ?
Sharpen those pencils and get cracking on a native MT-5 platform package for Mac
Is this not what you pay developers to do ? or do they sit at their desks chewing gum all day ?
Perhaps I'm missing the plot completely
All above didn't work for me as a Mac 10.14 Mojave user and I went for another approach.
Used Virtual Box + new Windows 10 home installation (free). You can run Ubuntu and other systems also
(but MetaTrader runs best on Windows)
1. download Virtual
Box on you Apple OS X mac system, install it: https://www.virtualbox.org/
2. download windows 10 https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10ISO
3. follow the installation guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuAVOpO7yF
4. when you have an up and running windows 10 home system on your mac, use the MetaTrader 5 inside that virtual world/machine.
5. enjoy your windows system with MetaTrader for windows on a mac ;)
is there still no way to install the MT5 on MacOS Catalina? If there is a possible kit, would it be possible for someone to put the instructions
There is no way to run MT5 on Catalina. I've searched almost everything to do run it, but right now, nothing works.
I know that several people are using windows, but I know other several people that have Mac and have to try other things like Parallels,
VirtualBox or bootcamp just to run MT4 ou 5.
Here my thoughts:
Thus, I am using the WebTrader version of MT5 or if it is possible I restart my Mac in bootcamp.
I really hope we have a proper Mac version of MT5 soon.
I too am frustrated that n 2020 with the Mac market approaching double digits worldwide, there isn’t a native MT platform for Mac OS.
My background is unix programming and development so pretty familiar with the Mach kernel under Mac OS. It seems if there’s a unix version (not running ontop of Wine), it could easily be ported to Mac OS. I’m guessing there isn’t a non-PC version out there since all the notes point to running MT4/5 on top of Wine or PlayOnMac or VirtualBox which all emulate in some way a PC.
Seems the market is over ripe for a native Mac MT platform!
I did try running on Parallels but it is pretty clunky and difficult with right mouse clicks which are abundant in MT4/MT5. At this point, getting an old laptop from a friend and am going to run MT4/MT5 on it solely. Pretty sad - brings back memories of 1995 days!
